What are the symptoms associated with finger fracture?

Finger fracture

Finger_fracture
Finger fractures usually will present with localized swelling. There will also be tenderness at the fracture site. If the fracture is displaced there may be gross deformity of the finger. Some fractures at the distal portion of the finger may be a small avulsion and the presentation is a mallet finger. The distal finger joint will be flexed and the person is unable to straighten it.
