Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) Tumors

Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) Tumors

The specialists of the leading Israeli clinic Tel Aviv Medical Clinic are considered the best in the world in the treatment of pathologies of the peripheral nervous system. And this is not surprising, because they have extensive knowledge, great experience, constantly participate in international conferences and symposia, thereby increasing their professional level. And thanks to modern high-tech equipment, it is possible to effectively treat the most complex diseases. In 45% of cases, it is possible to refute the diagnosis that was made in clinics in the CIS countries. And in 88% of cases, it was possible to successfully cure severe pathologies of the nervous system and return patients to their usual life.

If the tissue cells that make up the nerve begin to divide uncontrollably, the result of the process is the development of tumour pathogenesis of the nerve trunks. Neurinomas grow from Schwann cells, neurofibromas grow from the connective cells of the epineurium and perineurium, and lipomas grow from the adipose tissues of the epineurium. Experts cannot come to a consensus about the causes of the disease. However, they note the following factors that affect the appearance of pathology: exposure to radiation, chemical intoxication, environmental problems.


At the initial stage, the disease does not manifest itself in any way. However, with the growth of the tumour, patients with this pathology note the following symptoms: 

  • the presence of a dense formation when palpating;
  • the occurrence of pain syndrome;
  • the feeling of "goosebumps" or tingling;
  • numbness of the limb;
  • partial paralysis;
  • difficulty in movement;
  • weakness in the muscles and others.


Removal of the tumour is considered the main treatment. The operation is carried out exclusively if there are accurate indications so as not to provoke a relapse of the disease. The operation can be performed by one of three methods: exfoliation of the tumour formation; tumour resection with a segment of the nerve trunk; marginal resection of the nerve with the tumour body.

If the formation is malignant, then the specialist removes the nerve with the tumour to the borders of healthy tissues. In the most advanced cases, limb amputation is performed. Therefore, you should not treat your health carelessly, and if you have suspicious symptoms, you should consult a specialist for advice.
