Symptom #2: Swelling

A broken bone causes blood and other body fluids to leak from the injury site into the surrounding tissues. The injury also causes inflammation in the affected tissues as the immune system reacts in response to the injury. Collection of body fluids and inflammation lead to swelling at the site of injury.

Swelling of the nose in addition to other symptoms like pain and stuffiness are indications that you have a broken nose. The swelling may also affect the areas around the nose, and together with the fracture may lead to the appearance of a crooked nose.
