A traumatic neuroma 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. [Kahn, Michael A. Basic Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. Volume 1. 2001.] They are relatively rare on the head and neck.
