Q
What is a neuroma?

A

A neuroma is a painful condition, sometimes referred to as a pinched nerve or nerve tumor. It is a benignn growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the 3rd and 4th toes where they meet the foot. Morton is the name of the man that first published and described the occurence in this most common location, though neuromas can and do occur in other innerspaces.
