Default Re: Best treatment for small plantar fibroma?

Plantar fibromas generally do not just go. I would be inclined to think that it was not a fibroma in that instance but there are no absolutes and I could be wrong

Conservative management froms the mainstay of treatment. Exision tends to lead to recurrence but depending on your luck, it may not recur for a few years. It might, however, come back in a few months

Accommodate the fibroma with a well contoured orthosis with localised relief infilled with padding. Sometimes, if the fibroma is very large, the depth required for relief is outside of that that can be accommodated in the footwear. Surgery should be a last option and that means that you have used very accommodative footwear and insoles.

Good luck
