Dupuytren's Contracture: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
When to See a Doctor
Dupuytren's contracture is not a dangerous condition, but it can be disabling if it becomes severe.
Call your doctor for an appointment if:
- You have one or more lumps in your palm, whether or not it is painful.
- You have difficulty straightening your fingers.
- You have difficulty grasping objects.
- You cannot place your hand flat on a table or place your hand in your pocket.
