Hand And Finger Injuries (Overview)

A hand or finger injury is a condition in which a person has a bruise, cut, or fracture in his hand or fingers. Fractures can just be cracks, with the bones in fairly normal position, or they can be displaced fractures, with the broken ends out of place. Bruises appear with swelling, pain, and redness. Cuts and scrapes can lead to infections.
