In brief: Not really

A break in the foot bone does produce pain, swelling, and decreased ambulation.
But so does a number of other conditions including foot sprain. So an x-ray would be ideal and certain if there is a high grade breakage.

In brief: X ray to be sure

Pain, swelling, bruising, deformity can all make you suspicious for a fracture.
