Detailed Answer:
Dear ma,am
My best wishes for a speedy recovery
I have gone through your medical history in detail
With the history it seems that you have developed a depressed area over your forehead. But it is not clear whether this is over an old operative scar.
If it is over an operative scar, you should go for a CT SCAN head to see any intracranial pathology
Till that time you can take some analgesics & anti inflammatory medications
