Neuromas


Enlarged benign growths of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. They are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. The symptoms include burning, numbness or cramping between the toes or in the ball of the foot. Pressure from ill-fitting shoes or abnormal bone structure can also lead to this condition. Treatments include orthoses (shoe inserts) and/or cortisone or alcohol injections, but surgical decompression or removal of the nerve is sometimes necessary. New techniques such as cryoablation (freezing the nerve) or radiofrequency ablation have shown promise as well.
