Can methotrexate be used to treat a plantar fibroma? I have a plantar fibroma about mid-arch in my right foot that is very bothersome to walk or stand.

Once that condition has progressed to the point where walking and/or standing are painful, the only solution is surgery to remove the thickened areas of the tissue in your foot.

Even medications that are normally used, such as steroid injections or topical creams only lessen the pain and inflammation, they don't actually resolve the problem.

Methotrexate is sometimes used after surgery to help prevent recurrence, but it's not known to effectively treat the condition by itself.

What has your doctor recommended? Have you tried steroids or collagen injections?
