Hi,
Thanks for writing in.


Neurofibroma is a benign tumor of nerve origin. It can be single or multiple. It arises along the course of nerves. This is a genetic condition and there is no medication to treat it or control its appearance.

If any neurofibroma gets bigger and is causing pain then surgery or cautery is suggested. Please consult a surgeon and get a clinical opinion whether you require a surgery. Only the troubling ones will be removed under local anesthesia. There are no associated complications. Please do not worry.
