1 doctor agrees

In brief: Immobilize

You should see your md and get a referral to an orthopedist.
Some 'boxer's' fractures require reduction of the fracture, followed by 4-6 wks of splinting( ulnar gutter) or casting.Untreated 5th metacarpal neck fractures can lead to malangulation/ malrotation deformities of the pinkie finger ( uncommon) and loss of the 'knuckle' prominence( more common). Best of luck!
