A traumatic neuroma (also known as "amputation neuroma" or "pseudoneuroma"[1]) is a type of neuroma which results from trauma to a nerve, usually during a surgical procedure. The most common oral locations are on the tongue and near the mental foramen of the mouth.[2] They are relatively rare on the head and neck.[3]
