Question: Hi, I have swelling and bruising on the left side of my left hand after hitting it on a door.... not sure if it’s broken as I can still move my fingers and move my hand although it is sore to touch. Should I go to get an X-ray?

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor,

I have gone through your query and from the details you have provided, it does not seem to have an underlying fracture. But it is always good to rule out one with an Xray. If possible, can you upload a close up picture of your hand, so that I am able to comment upon the management in the proper way?

Awaiting your revert,

Regards.
