Swollen bruise can be broken?

Yesterday I dropped a cranberry juice bottle that was frozen, like ice you know for a cooler, on my right foot. the bruise swelled up right away and was like a lump on my foot. It was probably 1.5 inches round and about .3 inch high. then about 12 hrs later it had spread out maybe 2.5 in across and it is now a purplish/bluish color with a light pink circle in the middle right where the bottle fell. It kind of burns when something rubs against it. The bruise flattened when it spread out. Could this be broken?

Fracture is unlikely.

It will be a minor contusion or sprain.

As of now, you can use analgesics/anti-inflammatory combination like Aceclofenac/Serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief. You can also apply ice packs.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedician and plan for an MRI scan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
