Because not everyone with Dupuytren’s disease will develop contractures and loss of motion, not everyone requires treatment. If there are nodules in the palm or on the back of the finger, over the knuckles, and they’re not affecting motion and they’re not causing pain or discomfort of any kind, then no treatment is indicated. You can simply live with the nodules. Anytime the disease progresses to a point where function is being affected, you can no longer move your fingers fully. You can’t do the things you want to do or need to do with your hand. Then treatment is certainly indicated and there are many treatment options available for Dupuytren’s disease.
