Plantar Fibroma

A plantar fibroma is a knot in the arch of the foot. If there is a noticeable lump in your arch that feels firm to the touch, you may have a plantar fibroma. Unfortunately, it won’t go away without treatment.

The lump may stay the same size or it may get bigger. Either way, it needs to be treated. Steroid injections and orthotics can often help, but surgery is sometimes necessary.
