Q: How can I get rid of Ra nodules?

I have had RA nodules on my fingers for the past three years and I was told they would eventually go away. Is there anything I can do besides surgery to get rid of them?

You can have them removed surgically, or maybe they will subside somewhat as a result of medication. It depends on how long you have them and whether they have gotten worse or not. Your rheumathologist should be able to tell you.
