Early Dupuytrens disease can present with a lump within the palm of the hand. This is usually painless and does not require any treatment. They can feel slightly tender when gripping objects, such as a steering wheel. This tenderness does settle with time. If the Dupuytrens disease progresses, the fingers may begin to curl into the palm of the hand. See our information leaflet on Dupuytrens disease.
