Hi
Typical treatment consists of local steriod injections, orthosis if there is abnormal biomechanis, shoe changes. There is some very good information on this very topic if you type in the word plantar fibroma in the search engines. Try to avoid surgery. If is painful and has a fairly high reoccurence rate.
