Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera ?

On My Canon PowerShot SD870 IS I Have a Silver Circle On My Screen After Dropping It At The Skatepark, Should I Replace The Entire Screen Or Can I Fix It On My Own Somehow?

\015 I love this camera to death and there is a silver moon looking thing on my LCD screen. It's not on the pictures when I upload them on my computer but it is aggravating trying to show a friend a picture and you have a "black hole" in your screen. So please if anyone can help out and tell me if I need to buy a replacement screen or if I can just do something on my own in my own house simple and quick. Or if the camera is kinda just screwed and is going to have to stay that way and I need to buy another one. Thank you so much for reading and hopefully thank you for answering! (: Have a wonderful day :D\015
