Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   I was wondering if it's possible to fracture a bone in the back of your hand and still be able to move your fingers & hand?
Doctor :   Yeah it can be moved
User :   The back of my hand hit a metal bar on Monday and is still bruised, a little bit swollen, and there's a lump that's really tender. I haven't done anything since I can still move it. Should I go get an x-ray to see if it's fractured?
Doctor :   YEs
User :   What else is there possible to be wrong if it is not fractured?
Doctor :   It could be sprain
Doctor :   hair line fracture
Doctor :   but first rule out with an xray
