In brief: Depends
Dupuytrens is a hereditary disease where the palmar fascia, which is just superficial to the flexor tendons, develops benign scarring.
Sometimes this scarring simply creates nontender bumps in the palm, but in other patients it may progress to form cords that will cause extension contractures/inability to fully extend the digits. Usually involves the ring and small fingers first.

In brief: Dupuytren's is a
genetic familial disease, that is a progressive thickening of the fascia, a tough fibrous layer of tissue in the palm, Dupuytrens starts as nodules and can progress to cords causing joint contracture in the hand.

In brief: Dupuytren's contract
Duputren's contracture is fibrosis or scarring of the tendon sheath, most commonly the flexor tendon of the middle finger. With contracture you get a raised ridge of scar tissue in the palm with varying degrees of flexion deformity of the finger. Slightly more common in diabetics.
When unable to straighten the effected finger, will need surgical correction. Need to see a hand surgeon.
