Neuroma
 
 
 


 
Neuromas are enlarged benign growths of nerves, most commonly between the second, third and fourth toes. They are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Pressure from poorly-fitting shoes or abnormal bone structure can create the condition as well. Treatments include special shoes or inserts and/or cortisone injections, but surgical removal of the growth is sometimes necessary. Wider shoes along with lower heeled shoes help. New treatments using injections of alcohol have been successful without the need for surgery.
