Pea-Sized Bumps

Another neurofibromatosis symptom includes two or more pea-sized bumps on the skin that are soft. These can form in the womb or might not appear for years, such as late childhood or early adulthood.

These are cutaneous neurofibromas or tumors that form from nerve cells. The nerves they involve are not located in the brain or spinal cord. Also, patients may notice freckling in the armpit or groin that forms between the ages of three and five.
