Most often fibroids occur in adults, although they may also develop in children.

The most common types of fibroids are angiofibromas, dermatofibroma, oral fibroma, and plantar fibroma.

  • Dermatofibroma - a circular formation, mostly on the legs; they may be close, or almost red purple. When pressed on the skin, they felt as nodules. Dermatofibromas as fibroids in general, are rarely cancerous, so it's best just to not touch them.
  • Plantar fibroma formed on the arch of the foot. They also are benign, but sometimes causes pain when walking, so they need to be treated. For the treatment of used injections of steroids, orthopedic devices and physiotherapy. If pain persists or increases, it may require surgical treatment.

Symptoms of fibroids

The main symptom of the disease is the appearance of small tumors, which can be quite hard or soft to the touch. It can cause itching or be very sensitive to touch; with time fibroids can change color. Since fibroids are usually prominent, permanent contact with them a tissue or frequent shaving can cause irritation or bleeding.

The plantar fibroma may increase over time. Typically it causes pain when a person stands or walks. In some patients, after a while the new fibroids may appear on the feet.
