Has anyone ever treated from mallet finger?

Mallet finger. You should have an xray of the finger to check for fracture. If there is, need to make sure there is no evidence of joint subluxation. The vast majority of mallet fingers are treated with splinting of the finger fully extended straight. If fracture with subluxation, needs to be pinned. Good luck.

I have a mallet finger that never got treated. Aesthetically, it doesn't look great, but there is no pain. Should I have it looked at?

Your call. If the finger works fine and doesn't hurt, then it's totally your call on whether to get it fixed. Depending on the specif cause and how long it's been since it was injured, you may be able to have it splinted or you may require surgery to fix it. See your doc for an evaluation and possibly a referral to an orthopedist or hand surgeon. Read more...
No. If it doesn't bother you, leave it alone. Surgery would leave a scar and the finger will still be slightly bent. Read more...
Maybe. If the mallet finger is more than 3 months and you have full function, you do not need to get it looked at. If the injury is less than 3 months old, treatment is an option with splinting. Read more...
