Thank you for posting your query.
Based on the symptoms, you have suffered a mild head injury
and scalp hematoma (bleeding underneath the skin). This can lead to headache and lump formation.
As of now, there is no need to go to a doctor.
For symptom relief, you could take analgesics such as diclofenac
or ibuprofen. You should get better in 1-2 weeks.
However, please watch for symptoms of severe headache
, repeated vomiting, drowsiness
, etc. If you develop any of them, you should visit a doctor.
Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
