Question about Morton's neuromaIs it true that sometimes morton's neuroma has no symptoms?
in short- yes absolutely.
A Morton's neuroma is in fact a bit of a misnomer as it is not actually a true neuroma. The term is generally taken to mean a swelling or enlargement of an interdigital nerve of the foot. It is quite common to spot slightly enlarged interdigital nerves in the foot that are causing no problems on scans undertaken to investigate for other problems. Fortunately if the Morton's neuroma is causing no symptoms then it is nothing to worry about and requires no treatment.
