Broken Nose symptoms
Broken Nose

Symptoms could include:

  • Pain is a general term that describes uncomfortable sensations in the body, ranging from annoying to debilitating. Pain stems from activation of the nervous system and is highly subjective.
  • The nasal septum is a thin structure, separating the two sides of the nose. If it is not in the middle of the nose, then it is deviated.
  • Nosebleeds are common and rarely indicate a serious medical problem. However, frequent nosebleeds, a bleed that lasts longer than 20 minutes or occurs after an injury may require medical attention.
  • Facial swelling doesn't just include the face but can also affect the neck or throat. If there are no injuries to the face, facial swelling can indicate a medical emergency.
  • A black eye is usually the result of trauma to the head or face – particularly the nose, resulting in bleeding beneath the skin which results in discoloration or bruising. Most black eyes are not serious, but sometimes can be an indicator of a medical emergency, such as a skull fracture.

  • A black eye is when the capillaries beneath the skin around the eyes have broken, blood enters the surrounding tissue and discolors it, giving the appearance of bruising.
