tumor regrowth

Posted by Locks C on 1/26/04 at 23:11 (142915)

I had a tumor removed on the bottom of my foot and it feels like it is back. Do tumors grow back?

There are many different types of tumors (tumor does not mean cancer, it simply means 'new growth')and many of these lesions can recur. If you had a plantar fibroma removed from the bottom of your foot, there is a very high rate of recurrence of these lesions after excision.
