Acoustic neuroma or a cyst in MRI scan

Hi, I am female and 25 years old. I have two pictures from my MRI scan that I wish to have looked at either by an neuro or an ENT , please can you help. My current neurologist did not look through the whole of my scan, I think he had written me off before he saw the results. I think it might be acoustic neuroma or a cyst. I suffer from daily headaches, nausea, vertigo/dizziness and ocassional tinnitus aswell as balance problems. Thanks, Kate
