Dupuytren's disease is a painless thickening and contracture of tissue beneath the skin on the palm of the hand and fingers. Knots of tissue form under the skin — eventually forming a thick cord that can pull one or more of your fingers into a bent position. The ring finger and little finger are most commonly affected.  The "table top" test, in which you put your hand, palm down, on a table to see if it lies flat, may aid in diagnosing Dupuytren's. Radiation therapy is a highly effective treatment option for progressive early stage Dupuytren's disease and works best at the point when a person has knots or cording in the palms with minimal or no associated contracture.  Radiation for Dupuytren's can be given safely with minimal side effects and prevents development of contractures.

Approximately 60% of all cancer patients require radiation therapy during some phase of their cancer care.

Radiation treatments may be just one part of an integrated cancer treatment strategy involving other treatment modalities including surgery and chemotherapy.
