WOW, for many years I thought that my bent pinky finger on my right hand was
perhaps from a broken finger that no one noticed when I was very young and
it healed improperly. Now I wonder if it is actually this disease. It has
been bent for as long as I can remember. Lucky for me, no pain and I can
cause it to go straight with a whole lot of effort. Makes me wonder. I
guess if it is Dupuytren's I am the only one I know with it and it is a very
mild case because it does not cause pain, only looks a little strange.

Hi, Ralph;

I have just noticed this condition in my left hand. There is an explanation

about Dupuytren's disease on Google. I just entered the name of the
disease.
This is another lovely gene thing our children will not be so excited about
receiving. At least, most of us have long lived ancestors.
