Is it worth it to go to a Dr. now or will it heal ok on its own?

Hit tree pretty hard mountain biking about a month ago. My hand/wrist/thumb area swelled for a couple days. I iced it but couldn’t use my thumb for a week. I have most use back now, but it still hurts when I use it too much. Think it might be broken but didn’t see a Dr. and now it’s been a month.

    Since it's been a month, I'd get it checked out. I'd recommend seeing an orthopedist as they are the doctors who specialize in bones and joints.
