Can I have Morton’s neuroma in both feet? Bilateral Morton’s neuroma?

mortons neuroma both feet

Yes, you can have Morton’s neuroma in both feet. In fact, Morton’s neuromas are bilateral (i.e. involving both feet) in 15% of patients.

The pain and discomfort due to Morton’s neuroma is independent of the size of the tumor, so you can have a very small Morton’s neuroma that is extremely painful or you can have a very large Morton’s neuroma that only gives you a little discomfort. When you see your medical provider, make sure he or she examines both feet carefully and try to see a provider with experience in diagnosing and treating Morton’s neuroma.

Toe-spacers and/or orthotics can be used to help space out metatarsal bones and these can be used as a preventive or therapeutic modality.
