Patient :Today a dogs tooth hit my hand and a bruise started forming right away. It now has a bigger bruise, minimal swelling and it hurts to fully stretch my hand open.It is located on the thumb side, goes in a straight diagonal line from my thumb as is about 3/4 inch away from my wrist crease. Is the skin/muscle just hurt or do i have a fractured bone?
