I fell & hurt my pinky finger, its swollen & bruised. I can move my finger. The bruise seems to be travelling down my hand. Do you think it's broken?

May be broken: Being able to move it doesn't mean it is not broken. The spreading of the bruise is natural.
However, the bruise itself may be an indication that there is a break. Your doctor may be able to send you to an x-ray facility or may have an x-ray machine in his office. X-ray is the only way to be sure. Of course, if there is a change in the angle of the finger or in its rotation, then it is broken. ...Read more

There could be a fracture that didn't show up on the initial exam, or a soft tissue injury that wouldn't show up with simple bone imaging. See your doctor or an orthopedic specialist for appropriate evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
