fracture or not?

I whacked the top side of my right middle finger, below the knuckle, about a month ago...on a marble sink ouch! very hard..didn't see it coming..
It hurt real bad and I remember icing it that night and the few days after
it was still real sore...
But even now it still hurts and has some swelling...
(I'm guessing it hurts from the swelling)
Do you think it's still worth getting checked out?
Even if it was fractured, shouldn't it have healed by now?
Or do I keep it from healing by over using it, because I am right handed?
I guess I am concerned about future problems...is it silly to think it could trigger arthritis? Lupus and arthritis are in my family.
