Nose injury, bump formed, swelling and pain. What can help?

Hi, about tree weeks ago I accidently hit my nose on a very hard service and even though I applied ice there is bump formed on the side of my nose. It s not going away and appers to be hard feeling like a bone. I did have rhinoplasty about 2 years ago and my nose was perfect. I have also relocated to another state since so I am not able to visit my doctor. Could this be due to swelling of the bone, the cartilage and would it be possible to subside and go back the way it was? Are those injuries usually leave a permanent deformity? Or is it that if takes a couple monthts for a complete healing to take place? Thanks

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you have injured your nose, and there is swelling..
you have history of rhinoplasty in the past..
you might have injured the nasal bone again, leading to fracture.. that will lead to deformed nose..
see your ENT surgeon, probably you may need rhinoplasty now..
meanwhile take antibiotics and analgesics...
all the very best..
