Hello all! It has long been the goal of the Schwannoma Survivors & Schwannoma Fighters group to get easy to understand, accessible information - as well as firsthand stories, about Schwannomas to those who needed it the most. Often there is a disconnect between the dense knowledge that neurosurgeons have on Schwannomas - and the fact that the general public has almost no comprehension of what they are. But when I asked our group on Facebook if they would like to read more detailed medical papers on Schwannomas, the vast majority said yes. So, I decided that the mission of getting easy to understand articles out to people would continue, but that we would also do an occasional feature called a "Featured Medical Paper on Schwannomas." And I am going to use this blog to archive some of the more interesting medical papers I have found here.
