Plantar Fascia Myosis ?

Posted by eileenc on 10/13/02 at 08:30 (097425)

I have a friend who was diagnosed with this fairly rare syndrome. She has a mass approximately in the middle of the bottom of her foot; positioned inwards at about the halfway point of her arch.
She was told to learn to live with it because if it was cut out it would leave a big hole and then just grow back worse.
Also, she was told that people who drink too much ( she doesn't drink) tend to get this when their liver is malfunctioning.
Do you know what I am referring to?
Any suggestions would be truly appreciated. Thank you.

WRONG DIAGNOSIS!!! SORRY!!
The diagnosis is PLANTAR FIBROMATOSIS.
She said something about 'Lederhosen's' was on the doctor's notes.
