The thumb is an important organ. The main function of the thumb is the fact that we are able to easily grab and feel objects.
Unfortunately, thumb disorders are relatively common and they can appear spontaneously. The most common condition on the thumb is a fall. In the event of a fall we try to catch ourselves with the arms, hand and fingers. A condition can also occur due to overuse or a congenital abnormality.
