New Nodules

A year or so ago I was diagnosed with DC after a nodule and cord were found under my ring finger on my right hand. I recently discovered a new nodule growing under my thumb on my left hand. Is this common with DC? I've read literature that stated that the nodules almost always started under the ring finger and rarely the thumb. Another fun aspect of this disease is that my hands ache like a SOB.

    Nodules on thumb

    Scott, I've had Dupuytren's for 30 yrs. now 67. Have had 8 surgeries between Lt. and Rt. hand. I'm left handed and had nodules on the Lt. Thumb and had surgery on that one. Didn't think either that you got it on the thumb but I did.It has hit all my fingers except the ring finger. Getting to the point that I do not want any more surgeries. had surgery last April on lt. hand now the Rt. hand is acting up again. Really don't know whether the new procedure would b e any help due to having so many surgeries.Good Luck.

      knots joint of right thumb

      Common? There are certain patterns that seem to occur more often, like the ring and pinkie being effected. However, Dups is like a box of chocolates. I've got a lump and chord at the base of my left thumb, but it's never been active. Not even surgery on that hand caused it to flare. It's like an extinct volcano just sitting there.....Shhhhhh. However, a friend of mine had surgery for ring, pinkie **and** thumb. I have come to the conclusion that pain is correlated to the rapid spread of Dups tissue. It can be aggressive without pain, but if you have pain, it's probably doing it's thing.

      See you in Florida.

        knots joint of right thumb

        Yeah the base of the thumb is a common location as some on-line references confirm. I have that on both hands - one is slowly progressing into a thumb contracture, the other is not.

          Margaret,

          Visit:

          http://jvm.com/wstagner/dlinks.htm

          and read "FLARES". You will quickly learn the reason why you have such an aggressive case of Dupuytren's.

          In addition; you shouldn't mess with surgery for nodules, only contracture and then only with the NA procedure.

            knots joint of right thumb

            I'm 35-years-old & about 3 months ago, I noticed a round knot on the bone in the joint of my right thumb. About 3 days ago, another knot came up. The second knot seems to be bigger than the first. Any idea what this might be?

              non-surgical treatment

              If it's really happening that fast, I think it's probably not Dupuytren's.
