Question: hi Doctor, while playing cricket today ball hit so hard on my last finger's tip. I was able to continue managing the game. but it looks as if something inside got bent and came some of it out. it's paining a bit and much when we try to touch it. looks like some swelling is also there. can you please help me on my kind of treatment should I go through to get fixed?
