As a rule, tumors of the nerves - a benign tumor affecting the nerve trunk or its branches. While this may be suffering any nerves, including spinal roots and the pony tail, usually peripheral tumors located subcutaneously in the form of soft formations, sometimes red. If it affects the formation of these cutaneous nerves appear as multiple nodes stretch. There are two main types of nerve tumors: schwannomas and neurofibromas.
Neurofibroma (another name - fibronevroma) - a benign tumor of peripheral nerve, emerging from the Schwann cells and fibroblasts. Sometimes it can be subjected to malignant degeneration.
Neurofibromas are frequently multiple and grow out of the so-called endoneurium - the lining of the nerve. They can become cancerous. Most often these tumors are asymptomatic, but localization in a confined space (eg, intervertebral foramen) can cause radiculopathy or neuropathy.
Diagnosis of tumors of peripheral nerves
The main diagnostic criteria for tumors of the peripheral nerves are the results of the biopsy cytology education. This study allows to determine the nature of the tumor, benign or malignant process.
Treatment of tumors of peripheral nerves
Treatment of tumors of peripheral nerves is usually surgical. It is the surgical removal of the tumor. The operation can be performed under local anesthesia.

Diagnosis of snoring is placed without difficulty. For this query the relatives and carry out screening tests. However, there are additional instrumental techniques for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea.

If possible, you should remove the cause of snoring. Patients should avoid risk factors: Do not smoke before bed do not drink alcohol.
Treatment of snoring.
There are various methods of conservative and surgical treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Conservative methods are aimed at increasing the respiratory tract. Patients must choose the correct position for sleep. There are also special intraoral device, prevents snoring. Patients can do special exercises to reduce snoring.
Surgical correction of snoring and sleep apnea involves complex operations, improve nasal breathing, increase the clearance of the pharynx, which reduce the size of the soft palate and pharyngeal lymphoid formations. These operations are usually performed with a laser, ultrasound or mechanical scalpel. It is also possible in-patient treatment with positive airway pressure.
