NERVE TUMORS (Neuroma)





Category: Diseases of The Nervous System

A morbid increase in the tissue-elements of the
peripheral (the external surface) nerves.

Varieties. True and False Nerve Tumors. True nerve tumors (neuromata) are
composed of nerve-fibres provided with a medullary (marrow) sheath or of
nerve tissue; false nerve tumors are composed of other structure than
nerve tissue, are usually of secondary origin, extending to the nerve from
nearby structures.

Symptoms. The true nerve tumors may be hereditary or due to wounds or
blows and amputation. They may give rise to no symptoms, or may cause
intermittent pain. Pressure increases this pain, when the condition of the
nerve fibre is interfered with. Loss of local sensation and power may
develop. It is sometimes possible to feel the little nodular growths, and
they can be seen when they are superficial. They may give no pain, or they
may become very sensitive. They may become chronic and they are very
liable to do so. Some of them may disappear.

PHYSICIANS' TREATMENT for Nerve Tumor. The severe forms should be cut
out; others can be let alone.



NEURITIS (Inflammation of the Nerves. Neura-Nerves; Itis-Inflammation.
