"Dr. Graves explains: What is a neurofibroma?”
A neurofibroma is a type of non-cancerous nerve tumor that forms a lump on or under the skin. It can happen from a small or large nerve, and becomes especially problematic on the bottom of the foot.
Treatment of this condition in problematic areas usually involves excision with rotation of adjacent skin into the defect, called a lobe flap, which is a plastic surgery technique. A growing number of plastic surgery and minimally invasive procedures are now performed in-office under local anesthesia. It is well-received by patients as an outpatient medical procedure, that offers faster recovery, affordable costs, and increased value as it relates to time.
