Sharp pain in left palm, swelling, dark bruise. Used ice pack. Treatment?

My left palm had a sharp, stabbing pain in it. It was swollen and hot. My mother gave me an ice pack wrapped in in a wash cloth to place on it so the swelling would go down. Though the swelling subsided, the pain lingered and the bulge turned into a dark shadow under my skin. It still hurts. What happened to my hand?
