What Would A Broken Thumb Look Like
Depends: Thst depends on how bad the break is. If a bone is just chipped in a small area or even have an avulsed or torn tendon, the bone may look normal but jist not move right, while a large break may be comminuted and very misshapen. If there is a question, if you can't grip or squeeze things then you should get an x-ray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Terrible bad!!!!!!!!: One reliable sympton of a broken bone is horrible pain. The broken bone just does not want to be moved at all. A bad strain could also give just as much pain, so that is why your physician often needs an x-ray to help sort things out. Some fractures such as an impacted fracture of the upper arm or a skull fracture may not be that painful, so we do not just go by pain. Go for an exam by your md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Look of broken nose: A broken nose does not have a specific look. If you hit your nose hard and it bled and subsequently became stuffy or feels funny to you, it may be broken.

Amazingly I have seen lots of broken needles in patients that are not always painful especially diabetics. In the finger I presume one would have pain from the needle but certainly the puncture wound would heal if the needle was not terribly dirty otherwise if contaminated the area would be reddened ...Read more
Depends : On the type of spider, and ther are only 4 genera of spiders in the us that are dangerous to humans but generally, there may be 1 or 2 small puncture wounds in the center of a red, warm, swollen, initially painful (sometimes) but then sometimes itchy area. There may occasionally be some numbness in the area also. However, black widow bites and brown recluse and hobos can be quite different. ...Read more
Avulsion fractures: All avulsion fractures, regardless of their location, have a similar appearance on xray. You will find a fragment of bone broken off and separated from the remainder. The difference is that the break takes place at the insertion of a tendon and is the result of a pull from that muscle. ...Read more
???????????????: Often pin (metal wires) are placed across a fracture. This is usually done under some type of anesthetic. Once placed, they usually don't cause much of a problem (even to take out).
