Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can I help you?
User :   Hi I am 38 year old female and I had a dolly with sand on it this weekend and it got stuck in the dirt when I pulled it out the bar on the dolly landed on the top of my foot. I now have a bruise and a big bump on the top of my foot. Would that hard bump just mean it is a bruise or should I see the doctor
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   I will help you
Doctor :   Apply cold packs to the site of injury
Doctor :   it will give some relief
User :   So more than likely it is just a bruise?
Doctor :   but after some time check for the movements of the foot
Doctor :   if it is really causing a lot of pain
Doctor :   it is more likely that it could be much more than a bruise
Doctor :   there is a probability of fracture
