In brief: X-ray

You will need and x-ray to see if you have a fracture.
If fractured, you will need to be immobilized with a splint, cast, or rigid walking boot depending on the location of the injury. You may need surgery if the fracture is not stable or is displaced. Have you physician determine which course of treatment is best for you.
