Swelling, bruising, pain on right wrist. What could this be?

I have swelling, bruising and pain from my right wrist to the base of my middle finger. This occurred about 11 days ago. It happened when I was holding a retractable dog leash and the dog took off running and yanked my hand so hard (65 lb dog) that he flipped himself. Urgent care says tendonitis of wrist but never even asked about hand and finger. What could this be?

Thanks for writing to us.
The swelling and bruising without a history of injury is likely to be due to an inflammation caused by tendonitis or a carpal tunnel syndrome. Do get it examined from an orthopedician for confirmation.
