Plantar Fibromatosis

Posted by rfcoop on 2/12/00 at 00:00 (015763)

I noticed a lump on the sole of my foot several years ago. I went to three doctors including one podiatrist. No one knew what it was. I now have two lumps on that foot and two smaller ones in the exact location on the other foot. Thanks to the internet I think I know what I have...plantar fibromatosis. I can walk and only have occasional discomfort. Does anyone know what I could do to possibly halt this disease or at least slow it down (like foot exercize, diet, etc.).

do a search on this site as I remember someone's aunt or granny or something getting successful treatment for that.

It was my mother who was diagnosed to have plantar fibromatosis. She is almost completely healed now after several treatments with Extracorporal Shockwave Therapy. I will post a larger message about her later.
