Patient :I jammed or bent my middle right hand finger at work three weeks ago. I can still move it, it's not broke. It's not painful. But the knuckle is still swollen bad, and hurts to apply pressure to knuckle. I can bend it but not all the way closed (closed making a fist). I've been working for the past three weeks, I do construction. A friend is telling me to go to doctor, but I don't see the need. But would like some advice please.
