Reduced Flexion of Finger

Has anyone experienced a reduced range-of-motion in a finger due to what appears to be growth of tissue within the a joint?
I can no longer fully flex the 2nd joint of my pointing finger. I have a small dimple in my palm at the base this finger, along with a small nodule in the web between this finger and my thumb. There is no apparent swelling or tenderness of the joint, and there is no pain unless I try to force the finger to my palm. It has simply become more limited in its range over the last year or so.
As opposed to normal DC, I can extend it fully, but I cannot contract it fully to make a fist. I do not think it is arthritis.

George,
Like you said yourself, since you can stretch your finger, it doesn't sound like DC. Also, pointing finger is seldom involved.
Arthritis ? I don't know much about that, but I thought you would have pain in that case.
Some kind of cyst maybe ? You might want to have a doc look into it. But, if you don't feel pain and are not really burdened, I would think twice (or more) before considering surgery.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

George, Eddie,
George's experience is not dislike mine in the start. I had the "dermal pits" which were obvious DC (although I didn't know it at the time). But when I noticed the change in skin and a little stiffness in the joint was when I needed to get it checked. I also had no pain.
I agree with Eddie, to get it checked and don't get in any hurry to have something done. It might not go further than the present condition. You don't want to do anything to stimulate growth.
Keep in touch. Let us know what you determine.

Perhaps the problem isn't the joint at all. Maybe the flexion tendon has become attached at the base of my finger by the dimple process, and the extension tendon has become shortened through lack of use. Now the finger can't bend fully because of BOTH the bound flexion tendon, and the shortened tension tendon. Anyone out there have a tendon bound in this way?
