Can A Broken Thumb Grow Half Back?
Hello. Here, my friend has a broken thumb in half due to a work accident. Can the thumb grow again? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the human finger does not have the ability to regenerate like a lizard tail or other reptile tail. Therefore, if there is a complete break in the finger, the finger will never grow back. However, if your friend's finger break is very clean (meaning the broken tissue is not damaged, such as a broken finger due to a sharp object), your friend keeps the broken part well, and immediately goes to a hospital that does have a specialist and adequate facilities, then there is a possibility the doctor will be able to reconnect the finger. If the broken finger is uneven (the tissue is damaged), the breakage is long, the broken finger is not stored properly and is not immediately taken to the hospital, then the possibility of connecting is very small and cannot even be reconnected. The wound will only be closed or tissue grafted to cover the wound is large enough, but the finger will remain only half.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
