To wonder if I should have had an X ray?

I hurt my finger catching a medicine ball at the gym 6 weeks ago. It really hurt and was immediately very badly bruised and swollen. Even with lots of ice, elevation and rest it was much worse the next morning so I went to a&e to get it checked out, fully expecting an X-ray. The doctor though took just one look at me (hardly even looked at my finger) and told me that it wasn't broken and just to go home.
Six weeks later it still hurts when I bend it and there is a big hard lump on the side. Plus my range of movement isn't anything like it used to be. It feels a bit swollen too. Should I bother going to gp or is it not worth it?

Definitely go back, it sounds wrong.
