    Long-term effects of smushed finger?

    A long time ago—let’s say, more than 10 years—I smushed my ring finger in a car door. Hematoma ensued, but it healed without treatment in due course. There have been no future *health* consequences to my knowledge.

    That said, the ring finger at issue still seems smushed. It is noticeably wider (25%?) than the finger on the opposite side, and compared to my other fingers. And the nail feels less curved on top, and somehow odd when touching the nail from the front.

    Because there have been no adverse health issues, to my knowledge, I have not explored this further. But I would like to know if this is a common consequence of traumatic injury to the nail, whether anything needs to be done, and indeed whether anything can be done.

    It bothers me, but only because the nail and finger seem so unlike my others (and their previous forms), so I thought it might be worth seeing if anyone had any thoughts.

    Thanks so much in advance.
