Obturator Neuropathy Symptoms
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

Not really...: Neuropathy is damage to a nerve with the effects usually felt at the point of damage downstream from the damaged area of the nerve. As the nerve does not necessarily differentiate what the damage is from, one from compression of a tumor may feel similar to one from a bulging a disc. However, every patient is different and every situation involving tumors and nerve damage will be different. ...Read more
