I slipped a few weeks ago and hurt my left


Q: I slipped a few weeks ago and hurt my left foot. I figured the pain was normal for falling and I didn't think anything of it. It wasn't too bad in the beginning but it's gotten worse. It's still swelling some and there is a knot where the pain originates. I believe it may be an injury to my 5th metatarsal. The knot is about middle ways the length of my foot a little closer to my toes though and about the tip of a thumbs distance from the bottom of my foot. Do I need to get treated at this point?
