In brief: Benign nerve growth
A neuroma is a benign tumor or overgrowth of nerve cells which may grow from the nerve or be due to a focal injury.
Neuromas can occur anywhere a nerve is. A cervical spine neuroma arises from nerves exiting the spine in the neck region. Many are small, and cause no problem. Larger ones or ones affecting muscle and pain function need evaluation. Your neurologist can help.
