My son may have broke his finger at wrestling last night. It's swollen from the knuckle up. It doesn't hurt he can bend the finger. So does it sound like it's broke ?? thanks

You can't really tell, unfortunately. DH broke his thumb in 3 places...it never bruised and he could move it with minimal pain...it only ever swelled.

However, I slightly fractured a finger playing softball and that thing was swollen like a sausage, purple and black, and hurt if a butterfly flew past it!

If he can move it. I think not. But still would go to the doctor anyways.

I did take him. The doctor said it's just really jammed.
