I injured a toe in football a few weeks back, took a scan at hospital and it was just heavy bruising, but since then it keeps swelling up in activity?

Sounds like residual capsuliitis a steroid injection into the joint could relieve the symptoms much quicker.

In brief: Makes you

Wonder if there isn't a small fracture that the xray missed.
Nothing to do except ice, mild pain medications and try to avoid re-injury.
