So my friend got punched in the face a few times a week ago. Had a black eye and bruising on her cheek. I was worried that she might have a fractured cheekbone but apparently there was no pain. I consulted Dr Google and wasn't worried because there was no pain and her face wasn't physically 'deformed' or anything. And Google said there is no treatment unless it's severe. So it's a week later the bruising is going down but she still has a black eye and is a bit painful. She's thinking initially it was numb and now worried that it might be fractured. But the pain is still not severe apparently. Im unsure what she should do. Is there any point getting it checked out a week later when it appears to be healing? And if she should, should she go to the hospital or just her gp?
