Plantar fibroma is a common occurrence in the plantar aponeurosis that usually consists of a solitary lesion or multiple nodules. The condition commonly derives from the medial and central fascial band of the aponeurosis, and is typically non-cancerous. Plantar fibromas are generally slow growing lesions that are typically asymptomatic.
A plantar fibroma is a noncancerous or benign growth in the arch of your foot. It develops in the plantar fascia, which is thick, fibrous tissue at the bottom of your feet. This tissue covers the area from your heel to your toes and stabilizes your foot arch. This nodule, which grows slowly over time, can develop on one foot or both feet.
