It seems that your child is OK as there is no symptom like - vomiting, unconsciousness, convulsion.

Please monitor your child for such symptoms (as I mentioned), if appears or if the lump increases in size - visit emergency medical care immediately.

She may need analgesic syrup (Ibuprofen / paracetamol) if the area is painful.
