In brief: Fx? dislocation?

The forceful contact may have fractured nasal bone or may simply have dislocated the nasal cartilage.
Use ice to reduce swelling; tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain (rather than nsaid, which might increase risk of bleeding), & see ent. May require xray to determine fx. Ent can set fx or align dislocation.

In brief: Get it checked

That kind of injury could break the nasal bones or perhaps the nasal cartilages.
That could lead to a change in the shape of the nose or cause problems with breathing. If your nose has changed then you should have it checked within a few days by a surgeon who routinely treats broken noses. But don't wait to long or it may have already healed.

In brief: Nose trauma

May well have broken it.
The sooner you have it checked , the easier it will be to set if it's dislocated, otherwise will be crooked and need surg. If you're cosmetically self conscious.
