Got car door slammed on a finger by vintage 50s car when young. Never remembered which but one is thicker than the rest. Is that it? Why?

In brief: Trauma=swelling
Frequently, after traumatic injury, swelling (edema) of an affected extremity (or finger) never really resolves.
Also 'scar tissue' can 'build-up' causing the soft tissue to appear thicker than normal.
