Re: Non Surgical Treatment for Dupuytrens

I wonder if this condition does sometimes remit spontaneously. My
father had it and about a year ago I noticed a nodule in my right palm.
This has now become flatter and more difficult to detect, with no
treatment at all. I am watching it with interest to see what happens.
