The Index Finger Is Twisted And There Is A Hard Lump, Is The Bone Discolored?
Hello, I want to ask, I accidentally twisted my index finger. Initially sick, but over time the pain disappeared. But my index finger had a hard lump, and also the position of the bone was not the same as the other hand bones. After that I searched the internet if I think most of it is about bone dislocation. But in the article most sufferers feel pain or something else. But I do not. How is that? thanks. Sorry if it’s too long
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition you are experiencing may be dislocated or displaced, but this is not the only possibility. You may experience arthritis, infection, inflammation of the supporting structures of the limbs such as ligaments, muscles or tendons, or the appearance of cysts / fluid-filled sacs.
All of these possibilities will be difficult to know if there is no direct examination. Therefore, we recommend that you check your condition with the orthopedic doctor for further examination in the form of a history, such as how the maneuver is twisted, a physical examination directly by looking at the shape of the lump, and if a bone shift is suspected, as evidenced by supporting examinations in the form of x-rays or CT a scan. Without these checks, it is difficult to know the true condition of your hands.
Meanwhile, limit the activity of your hands, compresses with cold compresses, consume over-the-counter pain relievers when they are still painful, and avoid alternative treatments or massage if the doctor has not done an examination. So, hopefully answering your question.
