Leg swelling with neuromas

by Joy

Can neuromas cause lower leg swelling also?
Kind of like a bump? What is the best to make sure it is not a sarcoma? CT or something else?

Hello Joy,
I would need a lot more information to give a sensible answer to your question. Where is the bump, for example? What part of the leg is swollen? Where is the neuroma?

A sarcoma would be seen on a plain x-ray.

A neuroma is a benign tumour; if you're concerned about cancer, then I'd see an orthopaedic surgeon.
