Welcome to Health Care Magic,
If the fracture has not lead to any displacement,non operative treatment with a sling will be useful alongwith exercises.When fracture displacement occurs surgical intervention is needed.You need a x-ray to be done to know the kind and degree of fraction.A doctor is immediately needed.

General & Family Physician Dr. Anand Dilip Vakade's  Response
Depending on whether the fracture is open (bone fragments exposed) or not the treatment would be planned. In minor undisplaced fractures a plaster cast is put and arm immobilized. If there is severe displacement an oopen reduction of the fragments would be planned. The cast is put usually for 8 weeks. analgesics can be taken for the pain.
Hope that answers the question
Take care
