Hi Eliat.  Really, the only way to answer this question is through in-person examination as well as X ray imaging.

Consider using the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery website to locate a surgeon in your area.  

Good luck.

A nose can be broken without overt or external evidence of bleeding. Bruising is a result of bleeding that occurs under the skin. Nasal trauma which you suspect may have broken your nose should be evaluated by a qualified surgeon.
