  • A condition in which a person finds it difficult to bend or straighten the finger called trigger finger
  • Occupation-related injuries, such as calluses or damage to tissues, muscles, or tendons
  • Rheumatoid arthritis conditions, which inflame the membranes or tissues lining the joints
  • Growths in the muscle, joint, bone, or tissue that may be cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign)
