Swollen Painful and Bruised Thumb and Palm

Patient : I slipped on black ice the other day and put my hand out to break my fall and hit my right hand thumb. My thumb started to feel pain instantly and my palm under my thumb started to swell. The next day I was still in pain and a bruise started to form on the palm. The next day the bruise got worse and looks like its headed down to my wrist. Should I go see a doctor?
