In brief: Bruising & swelling

Usually with a break, there is bleeding from the bone which leads to swelling and bruising to the toe and surrounding area.
This is not always the case, but when i see this, i always take an x-ray to see. There is some degree of pain when the toe is moved at the site of the injury.
