About fracture

I was roaming around my house and suddenly I got slipped away and my foot got injured a bit. After a while it got swollen up. How to know if it is broken or not? The part is just beside the toe and first finger in the upper section. How to know for sure that it is OK or not at home??

Hello.. If it's a big fracture you one identify it soon .. If it's a small hair line fracture I lt would be masked by sorrounding edema collection .. So you get an x Ray affected bone now.. If nothing is visible and pain persists even after 2 weeks get another x Ray . By two weeks swelling will subside.
