how do you know if you broke your finger?

Gone fishin'
it swells up like a sausage and you can't move it for pain and swelling. It should be black and blue.

Are you serious?
Broken fingers rarely go unnoticed. Frequently, you have immediate pain after trauma and sometimes a deformed finger either at a joint (commonly a dislocation) or through the bone as a fracture. If there is no deformity, a sharp pain usually is felt very specifically at the injury site and will get your attention.

Sometimes you are not really sure if the finger is truly broken, and you try to bend the finger in question. A true fracture usually will be painful, but do not be fooled by a finger that has some range of motion and dull pain. Fractures are common. Depending on their stability, some may hurt more than others.
As time goes on, usually within the next 5-10 minutes, you will notice swelling and redness of the finger. The finger will become very swollen and stiff to move. Swelling is not as specific as pain and therefore may affect the adjacent fingers as well.
If the fracture is severe, bruising from released blood may be seen.
Finally, if the swelling gets too massive, numbness of the finger may occur because the nerves in the fingers are compressed.

But u definently should go to the doctor if it continuse!

If u can't write with it, and it's in extreme pain. u should see a doctor if it hurts for more than a day.

If you can't bend it that's usually a good indication it is dislocated or fractured. Getting an x-ray is best way to determine that.

If it swells up and you can't move it at all. You probably broke it or tore a legiment.

Everywhere you touch on your body "Hurts" :)

you go to a hospital and get it X-rayed.

That is the only way to be 100% sure that your finger is broken and it is not another form of injury.
