A paraganglioma is a tumor that originates from cells called paraganglia found in the middle ear:

*Glomus tympanicum tumors are small sized tumors originating in the middle ear.

*Glomus jugulare arise from paraganglia in or around the jugular bulb, and as they grow they occlude this venous structure.

Outcomes for Paraganglioma

Once these tumors are effectively removed, the symptoms caused by them should dissipate.
