Sever pain in right hand and right ring finger.

Can sever swelling not show the fracture in the x ray

Answer #1

Actually, yes it can. It’s happened to both me and my sister. The swelling can hold a small fracture together so tightly that there appears to be none. The doctors found out when, weeks later after being in a splint, they did another x-ray, and found where the bone was healing.

Answer #2

Swelling doesn’t stop an x-ray from getting a clear visual of a fractured bone.
