What is wrong with my nose? I don't know if I can break it this way?
I have a very heavy wooden personal item box (approx. 20 ibs) I picked it up and the lid was open and it slammed on my nose. I have a small cut about a half inch below my radix and swelling, pain, and a small bump.no nose bleed and 20 min of icing but swelling/pain hasnt gone down.Im not sure but i have a quarter inch bump where there is swelling and i believe i feel a crack.Is it possible to fracture your nose from a frontal impact and is it possible to fracture this part of your nose? Thanks!

Trauma to the nose can fracture the nasal bones or fracture the cartilages of the nasal bones. A in person consultation, examination and x-rays of the nasal bones we'll document the extent of the injury.
It is very possible that you broke your nose. Schedule an exam with a Plastic Surgeon as soon as possible.
Based on the information, it is possible to break your nose in this way. The only way to tell is to be examined by a plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon as soon as possible.
