Get back to wearing your normal shoes and resume your regular activity within a few days.


Description

Growth or thickening of nerve tissue.

Symptoms

Pain, numbness, and/or feelings of eletricty or tingling along the area of the nerve services.

Treatment Options

Injections, anti-inflammatories, surgery.

Treatment Option Description (with Duration)

Injections and anti-inflammatories are aimed at reducing the swelling of the nerve tissue and therefore reducing the pain or discomfort associated with the neuroma. If the pain does not subside, surgical excision of the thickened, diseased nerve can be performed.  More recently a minimally invasive in-office procedure is performed using cryotherapy that causes the nerve to die allowing patients to avoid painful traditional neuroma surgery. The neuroma is permanently destroyed in the office in under 30 minutes with almost no recovery time. 

Expected Outcome

Relief of nerve pain to the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, neuromas are non-cancerous soft tissue masses that can cause pain but are not life-threatening.

If you have a neuroma you want to avoid tight, narrow, or pointed shoes that put stress of the forefoot. These types of shoes can squeeze the bones near the neuroma closer together and cause pain.

Answer: No, a neuroma is sometimes found on an MRI when you have a separate issue entirely. If it is not bothering you, treatment is not necessary. If it becomes painful at a later date you will know that you have it and can discuss the treatment plan with your doctor at that time.
