Thanks for writing to us.
Since the swelling is persistent, a bone injury is likely. The confirmation can be done only after an X-ray of the affected area. You can attend an ER for the same and avoid any movements around your wrist to avoid displacement.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
