Outline of an early case of Dupuytren’s contracture
Hello Dr. Herazy,
I’m looking for some help in determining if I am in the early stages of Dupuytren’s contracture.
I have a small palm lump under the skin on my left hand that is noticeable. I have another flatter callous feeling item on my right hand, not noticeable unless you push on it. Neither are painful.I have not contraction of any fingers, these look like they are in line with my middle finger. I can easily lay my hand flat. I am 54, male, and not of any particular ethnic decent. I have Italian, Spanish, American Indian and English/Scottish in my ancestry.
Based on your description, there is a very high likelihood you are outlining the occurrence of an early stage Dupuytren contracture of both hands. I suggest you get a firm medical diagnosis of your hand condition to be sure.
Now would be an excellent time to begin Alternative Medicine treatment of your Dupuytrens problem. TRH
