Pop sound on hand during fall 4 days ago, swelling and tenderness, advil and ibuprofen.

Hi my husband fell on his hand a few days ago while playing ultimate frisbee. he felt a pop right away. That night it swelled up, and has been very swollen and tender since, and bruises showed up late the next dayr. he is a floor sander and he has been taking advil and ibuprofen and working with it still. it has been 4 days now. we do not have insurance and cannot afford to get it checked out if it will just go away. any advice would be soo appreciated!

hi aman
sorry for your hubby's hand
check out whether he can do all the movements of the wrist and fingers
if it is very painful an X ray will help you to decide properly
if possible upload a photo
