Fractured Hand Swollen Will Swelling Cast
I have a fractured hand, and it's very swollen. Will I have to wait swelling to subside before I get a cast?
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

Punched a person & car window about two weeks ago. X-rays show no fracture. There's a lump on the backside of my hand. Painful to move hand& swollen.
Pretty Handy.: More than likely, your hand has suffered some soft tissue damage. If the x-rays were taken immediately after the altercation, a stress fracture may has been unable to detect at that time. This could contribute to the swelling you are having now. It may be to late for the therapeutic effects of RICE now. (Rest, ice, elevation and compression.) You can try moist heat. See a doctor if no improvement. ...Read more

A good therapist can help controll the swelling. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
