At Memorial Sloan Kettering, we know that even after you’ve finished your treatments, you may still need our help. We’re committed to supporting you in every way we can — physically, emotionally, spiritually, and otherwise — for as long as you need us.
Although acoustic neuroma tumors are almost always benign (noncancerous), it’s still natural and normal to worry about your diagnosis — before, during, and after treatment. We’ve built a program for patients and their families that includes support groups, follow-up programs, educational resources, and more.
Plus, our Resources for Life After Cancer program offers individual and family counseling, lectures and support groups, and practical guidance on employment and insurance issues, among other services. Visit the Survivorship Center to learn more.
Medical treatments — like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery — are often the best way to treat your cancer. Their whole purpose is to get you healthy again. But at MSK, we know that complementary services can also help soothe and heal not only your body but your mind and spirit, too.
Our Integrative Medicine Service can be a valuable part of your formal treatment plan. Programs we offer include massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, visualization, music therapy, and nutritional counseling. Formal classes include yoga, tai chi, and chair aerobics.
Sometimes, you and your loved ones just need someone to talk to, someone who’s trained to help you make sense of your journey before, during, and after treatment.
Our Counseling Center offers both individual and group counseling sessions to help you and your family cope with your disease. These sessions can be a healthy, productive way to work through the stress and anxiety that are sometimes a part of treatment and recovery.
