Is it possible to have more than one neuroma in a foot at the same time?

Although it is possible to have two neuromas in the same foot simultaneously, it is quite uncommon. Results of the removal of two neuromas are far less successful than when only one neuroma is removed.

Is it common to have a neuroma in both feet at the same time?

This is possible, but it does not usually occur. A neuroma is usually an isolated entity occurring in only one foot at a time.

If a neuroma is removed, can it reoccur?

Once a neuroma is removed, it cannot return. Whenever the nerve is cut, however, a small growth occurs at the end of the nerve called a "stump neuroma". This small ball of tissue at the end of the nerve can be sensitive if it is under a weight-bearing area of the foot.
