Is it sore, hurting you?
Could you post picture of it to this page?
If just bruise then seeing doctor tomorrow would be fine...
Main thing here I think is to establish that nothing worse I going on such as a hand fracture or infection( cellulitis)

How did you hurt the hand? The mechanism of injury may be telling...
Does it hurt to grasp with the hand now??
A bruise is bleeding under the skin of course and it will tend to have a spreading effect over a few days.....
I see. This does not appear to be MAJOR trauma or an infection so yes I think it is fine for you to be seen by your doctor tomorrow. I think it is most likely soft tissue injury here. I would advise taking an NSAID such as Aleve or Advil...
Closer exam of the hand tomorrow should be fine for you though..
I hope that this is helpful. Let me know if you have further questions or concerns. Best regards! Please remember to leave positive feedback if my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction. Take Care !
Yes I saw the redness but it does not look that severe in the picture ..you say not that much pain either >> so I think it is fine to wait to be seen tomorrow. I do not think there would be any significant change between tonight and tomorrow...
Let me know if you have further concerns. Best regards,
