I dislocated my finger two days ago and straight away I 'popped' it back into place; its swollen, bruised, it hurts/aches do I need to see a doctor?

In brief: Depends

If it moves well and does not appear rotated, you will likely end up with the same result whether you see an orthopedic surgeon or not.
However, you will get help with improving stiffness and predicting the final outcome.
