I caught my thumb in a sliding glass door last

I caught my thumb in a sliding glass door last night and have a lot of swelling and bruising under the nail. I am on vacation right now and am going scuba diving in the morning. It’s pretty painful but it’s just a bruise right. Diving will be fine??

I recently fractured my right thumb - distal fracture is what the x-ray showed at UC clinic. The thumb was forced back when I was trying to adjust (slide) the heat control knob switch on my new (old) 1993 Honda Civic LX causing immediate pain in the finger tip area and feeling as if it were slammed in a door. I m still in acute pain and have a finger splint. I cannot touch finger with anything or move it far without lots of pain. It is still quite swollen. Is there more that can be done or should be done?

I crushed my thumb in car door 10 days ago. There is no pain as top half of the thumb is numb. Thumb is swollen at least twice the normal size and extremely dark blue from blood pooling. Is it ok to wait for blood to be absorbed without seaking medical attention

Hi Dr. About 2 weeks ago i cut the inside of my thumb on a piece of glass. It took a while to stop bleeding because the cut was deep. I bandaged it up and did not get stitches, the cut healed and scar tissue started developing i went to the doctors to get an x ray done to make sure no foreign objects were in me and there were none and the doctor said i should be fine. I assumed the pain from using my thumb would stop soon after but it has still been hurting. this occures most when im writing with a pen. Is it possibe the cut when deep enough to mess up the functional abilities of my thumb?
