Like Nails Growing On Amputated Fingers?
I want to ask. My friend was amputated by his finger, which was the little part that was amputated in the area of the nail tip. Now, after opening the connection, how come there are nails that grow? Is it dangerous or not? Please give the info, thank you.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Without a direct physical examination, it is difficult for us to find out the cause and prognosis of the danger / absence of a lump growing from an amputation wound on your friend's finger. We recommend that your friend conduct a control visit to the surgeon who handles it so that an evaluation of the development of the postoperative condition can be carried out, an assessment of complaints made, and treatment of post-operative wounds. If there are indications, the doctor may conduct a biopsy investigation to identify the cause of the lump you are referring to. As a suggestion, it is best for your friend to keep the wound from being clean and dry enough.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
