Plantar Fibromas

Plantar fibromas are benign tissue tumors or growths on the plantar, or bottom surface of the foot. Unlike plantar warts, which grow on the skin, these grow deep inside on a thick band of ligaments called the plantar fascia. The tumors make walking painful and put undue stress and pressure on different parts of the foot.

Dr. Stran Discusses Fibromas


Prescription orthotics can help shift pressure away from the fibroma and bring relief but there are times when removing the fibroma surgically is necessary to remove the painful tumor from your arch.

Many times, patients put off visiting the foot doctor if they detect a lump or mass in their foot but this can allow a condition to progress and make treatment more difficult.

Our board certified foot and ankle surgeons will be able to end the worry by diagnosing the mass and help you determine the most effective treatment options.
