Dupuytren~sq~s and Desmoid tumors

Joshua,

I will share the info., but I don't know if we're on the right track or not, be it Dupuytren's, Peyronies, plantar fibromatosis, or anything else for that matter. But I hope and pray that we are close. Thing is, I am ABSOLUTELY convinced that the answer to this and most other diseases is "out there" somewhere. We just have to find it (and then-the hard part-convincing doctors to try something that they've never heard of before). I do know know that they are looking at all kinds of vitamin D analogues (especially ones that are anti-proliferative), but don't have the problems with hypercalcemia.

Dupuytren~sq~s and Desmoid tumors

This is interesting to me. I'm a female with three younger brothers. No one else in my family has ever been diagnosed with Dupuytren's but my youngest brother did have a Desmoid tumor removed. At the time, he was told it was a form of cancer.

It~sq~s hereditary

My maternal grandfather had it. My mother had it. My sister-we have the same mother but different fathers- has it. I have it in both hands, one foot and my penis. There may be other factors that contribute and exacerbate the disease but you need to start with the genes. My doctor in conjunction with a medical school is trying to isolate the gene by taking dna samples of all his DC patients and their relatives. I beleive only then will we have any hope of some kind of prevention or cure.

N/A

I think N/A might be fine for simple contractures but when you have a nodule like mine, that draws down all four fingers and the nodule is not only in the hand but the fingers themselves, surgery is the only alternative. The people who can temporarily correct their DC with N/A should consider themselves extremely fortunate. BTW-surgery is not a permanent fix. It removes some of the diseased tissue but in aggressive cases like mine it usually returns.

DC

My grandmother had arthritis in her hands but as far ar I know I am the first DC sufferer in my family. I believe that for me it is linked to a ring I wore constantly for years, not realizing that with the passage of time my finger had gotten thicker & I was cutting off the blood supply to it. The first sympton was what felt like tendonitis in that finger & the inability to fully exxtend it. I have had this before in other fingers (tendonitis)& it eventually went away. However, this time I got the nodule in the palm & my doctor told me the diagnosis. She said there is no connection with the too-small-ring but I have a hard time believing it.
Do others of you suffer from tendonitis in the fingers or arthritis?

arthritis & DC

Arthritis and DC generally go together. The more severe your DC, the more prone you are to have arthritis.

Welcome

Christine,

You have definitely come to the right place. Please do yourself a favor and invest the time needed to get up to speed around here. You'll find info you can't find anywhere else. You have not posted regarding the severity of your case, but if your docs are recommending surgery, or suggesting it may become necessary at some point, don't start with that. Instead, look into NA as your first line of defense.

Welcome, and good luck.
