Will Hand Of Teen Grow If Thumb Fractured
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

Question about diagnosis/misdiagnosis of scaphoid fracture. Several months ago a box fell on my hand near the base of my thumb, i was concerned that something may have been broken or fractured, but i had MRI which should bones were intact.
How likely tha
This : This has nothing to do with training, experience or expertise. Some fractures just don't show up despite proper good standard assessment, but the percentages are small. The radiologist who read the study as negative also is trained to do so. To get an idea of the complexity of this question see the links below an MRI that is read as negative for scaphoid fracture rules out a fracture most of the time. There can be false negatives and false positives. A MRI will detect variations in the bones trabecular pattern ( inside the bone) often associated with negative x-rays. If anything inexperience in reading MRI can lead to over diagnosing a fracture by mri. Other tests include a ct scan, which is better for cortical ( outside) disruption and a bone scan which is less specific a contused or bruised joint near the base of the thumb especially if there is even a touch of mild arthritis can often take time to feel better a good way to assess persistent pain several months after injury is to be reevaluated and get new plain x-rays including scaphoid views and be assessed for things other than a scaphoid fracture that can still give wrist pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fell onto my hand yesterday, thumb slightly swollen, aches and is tender. Restricted movement. Cant hold anything heavy.Could it be scaphoid fracture?
I just hit my hand on something hard and immediately my thumb at the joint became slightly swollen and bruised. It's not hurting unless I mash on it. It is a little numb at the joint, but not bad. Is this most likely a sprain, fracture, or break?
Hard to say: It is really hard to say. If you had significant mechanism to have caused a fracture, you might want to be seen, examined, and get an X-ray. If it was a minimal "bump" you might give it 24-48 hours if rest, ice, elevation and if it seems to have resolved let it go but if not better be seen. ...Read more
