Symptoms and causes of Ledderhose disease
Ledderhose disease usually occurs in middle-aged and older people, though it can develop in younger adults too.
Diagnosis and treatments for Ledderhose disease
Your doctor should be able to confirm a diagnosis of Ledderhose disease after physical examination of the foot, as the location and appearance of the nodules are characteristic of the condition.
Radiotherapy for Ledderhose disease
Radiotherapy, or radiation treatment, is a non-invasive procedure which uses high energy X-rays and other beams, such as electrons, to treat disease. It’s most often used in high doses to treat cancer, but it can also be used in lower doses to treat non-cancerous (benign) conditions including Ledderhose disease of the foot.
