Hi Just wondering if anyone can give me information about Neurofibromatosis?
Any links or helplines would be good, if possible.
Have very basic info from the hospital but had a Genetic Counsellor out and they've taken literally all names of all family members etc.
Would really appreciate anything you can tell me, however basic or however complex, thank you

If you type neurofibromatosis in your browser's search box it will give you a lot of links.
this one is for the NHS website:
http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Neurofibro ... ction.aspx
and this one is for the Neurofibromatosis Association]http://www.nfauk.org/
but there are a lot more.
I had reason to look it up last year as I've developed a fibroma (fibrous) lump on my perineal nerve in my leg which is causing pressure on the nerve and resulting in pain my ankle and lower shin. I've been referred to a neurologist and it looks as though it will have to be removed surgically, just waiting for next appointment for them to confirm action to be taken.

Thank you for the links
Susie I hope you can get your lump sorted soon without too much hassle and that all heals nicely. I've had quite a few lumps and bumps removed as I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma and I have dysplastic naevus syndrome so I've had multiple ops.
Hope all goes well with yours
