Medical glossary from medi amputation neuroma

Amputation neuroma

= This is a tender, growth-like nerve stump thickening in the area of the scar after amputation of a limb. Neuromas send out strong pain signals even on mild stimulation. If local measures to alleviate pain are inadequate, surgical stump correction may have to be considered. This disease does not allow a correctly fitting prosthetic socket to be fitted.
