- Symptoms and Treatments
Neurofibroma is a benign
tumor characterized by slow growing cysts that are intricately intertwined
with the body’s nervous system. There is very little pain
associated with the growth of neurofibroma; however, the patient
may experience what feels like small, electric shocks as the tumors
increase in size. There is no known cause of neurofibroma, and it
can happen to anyone at any age.
In order to determine if you are suffering from neurofibroma, your
doctor may perform a biopsy or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
If it is determined that you have neurofibroma, he or she will determine
the best course of treatment.
Treatment for neurofibroma:
Treatment for neurofibroma is often surgery. However, because this
condition involves the nervous system, the risks involved with surgery
are very high. If you feel that you or someone you know may have
neurofibroma, you should contact a physician as soon as possible
to prevent this condition from getting any worse. Though there is
no known cure; the earlier you can catch neurofibroma, the more
likely you are to recover.
