Thumb?

I hit my thumb very hard a few days ago and it pretty much swelled to twice its size within minutes. The bruising went down and its fine now except for a small lump on the side of my thumb joint which is incredibly painful when its touched. My thumb wiggles fine and the lump doesn't hurt when it bends just if its touched or pressed. Could I have possibly cracked the bone?

    Possibly, or possibly not.

    If you've got a free randge of movement it's not an urgent worry but of it's not getting better, or moving hurts then get it looked at.

    Moving doesn't hurt though, just when that particular bit is touched its quite strange :confused:
