Is it possible to sprain or fracture ur big toe without actually knowing it? I hit my toe a couple weeks in school very hard on like marble stairs
Common mechanism!: Unbeknownst mild trauma can cause or result in a nondisplaced fracture or sprain/bruise of a big toe that strikes a solid (marble) structure. Pain and numbness (from significant swelling that compresses the nerves) yields to pain and bruising if an actual fracture of the bone occurred. The only way to really know for sure is to have a thorough orthopaedic evaluation and obtain X-rays if indicated. ...Read more

May need Xray & exam: The more important thing is that you are checked for injuries such as an orbital fracture and for a septal hematoma. A nasal bone fracture is probably not itself very important. But fractures of the orbit can cause problems with eye movement, and septal hematomas can lead to a septal perforation which may cause a persistent sensation of nasal congestion. ...Read more

Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp. ?
Doctor can check: A bump from an ingrown hair on the lower leg should not cause an amount of pain that would make a person limp. There could be something more serious there, and one's primary care doctor can examine the area to see what is going on. One possibility is a skin cyst (epidermal inclusion cyst) that has gotten inflamed or infected... those usually need to be opened or removed. ...Read more
Hit my upper leg on edge of table very hard a month ago. Had a huge bruise and pain but it's gone.now I touch & feel a hard lump under skin. Hematoma?
WeAllTakeOurLumps: Yes, it could be what remains of a hematoma under the skin. That lump could be there for a few months but the body absorbs most or all of it. Nothing dangerous. Sometimes some scar remains forever but shouldn't be a problem unless you can see it and it bothers you. But, if it starts growing or begins to hurt or the skin discolors, get it checked out. ...Read more
