A 25-year-old female asked:
My finger has been broken about 7 days now and today it is super swollen and numb... is this normal?

Fracture: See your doctor immediately.
If super swollen and numb, may be due to infection, blood vessel injury with continuous oozing inside. Don't hang your hand, keep it up at your heart level.
