Hello!

Thank you for the query.

As there was a trauma of this finger recently, there is a possibility of bone fracture or bone dislocation. Depending of the place of dislocation/fracture it can get healed by itself but it might need also some medical attention. Some fractures or dislocations can be painless or cause only mild pain.
That is why it is advisable for you to have it checked with an X-ray.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Hello!

So it sounds more like dislocation. I suggest you to go to ER and have it explained as hands fingers are very important for everything we do. The longer you wait with it, the more changes and distortions do appear around this joint.

Hope this will help.
