I hurt my toe

Question


I stubbed my little toe really badly today and it got really swollen and red. I can't move it very much and it hurts whenever I put pressure on it. I don't know if it's fractured, broken, sprained, or just bruised. Is there any way I can find out without getting an X-ray?

Answer

Not with any real certainty. An experienced Podiatrist can make an educated guess based on the presenting symptoms but, x-rays are usually required to be certain.
