BILL NIGHY IS one of the most beloved British actors, with appearances in countless iconic films. Besides his impeccable acting skills, one of the first things you might notice about the actor is his hands because he suffers from a genetic condition called Dupuytren’s Contracture, which causes his fingers to curl into his palm.
It is a condition that affects more men than women and usually affects people aged 40 or over. It is caused by thickening of tissues (fascia) in the palm. If the condition progresses, one or more fingers bend (contract) into the palm and you cannot straighten the finger/s. The cause is not known.
I, like Bill, have the condition and watched my little finger bend inwards over the months during the course of 2019. Like most men, I was aware that something was not right, but I was just too busy with work and travel, so it took me a few months to reach the Doctor’s door.
