Neuroma

A neuroma is a thickening or enlargement of nerve tissue which is the result of compression and irritation of the nerve. The most common neuroma in the foot is a Morton's neuroma, which occurs in the 3rd and 4th interdigital space. The condition can occasionally occur in the 2nd and 3rd interdigital space.

If there is a neuroma, one or more of these symptoms may indicate where the nerve damage is occurring:

  • Burning
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Tingling

To properly diagnose the podiatrist will obtain a thorough history of your symptoms and examine your foot. During the physical examination, the doctor attempts to reproduce your symptoms by manipulating your foot. Other tests may be performed such as MRI or x-ray.

Treatment approaches vary according to the severity of the problem.
