Nose bruised or Broken?

This answer was rated:

Tip of the nose hurts after rubbing nose, it feels as if my nose is broken? I somehow shifted a bone in the nose by rubbing my nose.

911DOC :

there is no bone at the tip of the nose

911DOC :

the bony part of the nose ends about halfway down the nose from your forehead

911DOC :

beyond this there is only cartilage

911DOC :

without major trauma to the nose like getting hit with a baseball or a fist

911DOC :

it is extremely unlikely that you have anything wrong that time alone will not heal

911DOC :

if you are a smoker or if this problem persists it would be wise to have your doctor look at your nose, both on the outside and insid

911DOC :

'inside'

911DOC :

simply to check for any internal abnormalities that migh indicate a problem

911DOC :

but for now i think giving this a few weeks to resolve would be fine
