So after taking my son to the doctors and my own research he has been diagnosed with dupuytrens. He only has it in his right hand at the moment and isnt affecting his fingers, the first docotor we saw wasnt really interested and just said to wait and see i have been back again just asking for more information and have been referred to a specialist. Iv read its rare in children but not impossible our doctor hasnt seen it in anyone under 30 but my partners father has it and i have read its herriditry. Just wondering if anyone else has had it at this and any info on the next steps and what to expect are. Thankyou
We have our appointment next month with a childrens specialist so will wait and see. The 2 doctors we have seen were sure it is and i hadnt even mentioned my father inlaw. Hes not in pain and isnt affecting him yet so just a waiting games and see what the specialist says. Thankyou for the link ill have a read.

Hi! I was diagnosed a few years ago in my late teens, however, I had fibromas in other parts of my body (neck and chest) from childhood (which could be connected to DD). Feel free to ask me any questions.
