1. As it is an autosomal genetic disease and since neurofibroma are BENIGN i.e. there is no evidence for malignant transformation, thus these tumors can lead to brief stinging, itching, and pain at the site of origin and usually have psychological impact on the individual's self esteem, and social relations.

2. Plastic surgeon(s) should be consulted for surgical resection of neurofibromas, especially for those of face and neck. The result of the surgery dipendends on the size, localization, and structure (diffuse, nodular, or pendunculated) of the tumors.

PS. In general, neurofibromas in patients are only removed when they become symptomatic or if they are growing in size.

3. In Ayurveda, we treat the disease under heading 'Vataj Arbud' and/or 'GRANTHI' Rog. although cure is there but it may not be possible to provide results rapidly. You can ask for prescription medicines like kanchnar guggul, ashwagandha, mahamanjishtha arisht,kaishore guggul, afterwards symptom wise treatment can be added according to individual response.
