My father hit his distal phalange right ring finger while applying pressure to a ball bearing he was trying to remove. He is experiencing discoloration and a large swelling in the form of a bubble on his distal area. He can move it but is still experiencing pain. Do you think it is more likely a contusion or something worse like a broken bone or fracture . Also he is stubborn and refusing to go to the ER tonight and is waiting to get it looked at. What is your expert opinion on the possible diagnosis?
