Probably sprained: You probably sprained your finger if you can still move it, but without an exam and possibly an x-ray, i can't be certain. If it still bothers you, you should see your doctor.

Likely trauma: Bruising and swelling in an area that hurts almost always indicates some trauma. It's possible that your friend has a broken rib or just soft tissue injury. Do they remember any history of trauma? If not, did they get hit in the head? It is possible that it could be something else, but i would give it some time to go away. If it doesn't, they should see their doctor.

Sorry....: Sounds like you and your doctor need to talk. I can't tell from your question whether your doctor is "withholding" information from you or if they "don't know" what the tissue and foriegn body is. Either way, you need to straighten it out with them. Good luck!
