MVA last night, hit a tree due to accelerator defect. Face hit steering wheel so hard it bent it, immediate nose bleed. Pain and swelling today. Broken?

Nasal trauma. If your eyes are black and blue, probably nose is broken. No, no, X rays not needed - the ENT doctor can tell without them. Meantime cold compresses to reduce swelling. Actually more important to examine to see if there is a blood clot in the nasal septum because this can damage the cartilage and cause deformity. If your breathing is blocked, see an ENT specialist. www.grossaninstitute.com.
