Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that you suffered a minor head injury. The bump you can see on your head is most likely a hematoma- a small collection of blood.
Such hematoma usually resolves on its own. Complete resolution may take 8-10 weeks time.
Right now medicines will not help you much. Doing a hot fomentation might hasten the recovery. Usually calcium does not build up at such injuries. You can only wait for it to heal on its own.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
