A neuroma is a painful condition, also referred to as a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. | Schedule an Appointment with Dr. Leonard Knudson for a Neuroma Consult | Call: 310-876-1579

A neuroma is a disorganized growth of nerve cells at the site of a nerve injury. A neuroma occurs after a nerve is partially or completely disrupted by an injury — either due to a cut, a crush, or an excessive stretch.


At times, the patient will describe the pain as similar to having a stone in his or her shoe since the principal symptom associated with a neuroma is pain between the toes while walking. Those suffering from the condition often find relief by stopping their walk, taking off their shoe, and rubbing the affected area.


The vast majority of people who develop neuromas are women.



Symptoms of Neuromas


The symptoms of a neuroma includes pain in the forefoot and between the toes, tingling and numbness in the ball of the foot, swelling between the toes, and pain in the ball of the foot when weight is placed on it.
