Doctors believe that acquired mutations cause the tumors, rather than hereditary genes. Glomus jugulare tumors form more often in women than in men, and in older adults. They can, however, form in anyone at any age. A physical examination is the first step towards diagnosing a glomus jugulare tumor.

The symptoms, as well as an examination of the ear and throat area, can indicate that a tumor may be present. There may be a lump on the neck, and the tumor may even be visible inside the ear. To confirm the presence of a glomus jugulare tumor, your doctor needs to perform an imaging test, such as a CT scan or an MRI. Either test can give your doctor a detailed image of the area in question and confirm or deny the presence of a tumor.

The only real treatment for a glomus jugulare tumor is surgery. Even if a tumor is small and not causing severe symptoms, it may need to be removed. There are a few different options for surgery. Complete Surgical Removal A glomus jugulare tumor may be completely removed using traditional neurosurgical techniques. The process is difficult because there are so many nerves in the area, but if the tumor can be taken out without damaging any nerves, no other treatment is needed. It involves the use of X-rays aimed at the tumor to destroy the abnormal tissue.

Unlike traditional radiation therapy, this technique is more targeted and less likely to harm normal tissue. Surgery Followed by Radiation Therapy In some cases, traditional surgery to remove most of the tumor is combined with follow-up radiation.

What Is the Long-Term Outlook? The sooner the tumor is removed, the better your chances are for a full recovery. If the tumor has invaded blood vessels and nerves, it will be more difficult to remove.

In spite of the complex nature of surgery to remove this type of tumor, most people are cured following one or more procedures. In some cases, the tumor may return, which means that more surgery is required.
