Dent in forehead, discomfort, tingling sensation on face. Fracture a possibility?

Hi there, i got hit with a bottle after trying to break up a fight at the weekend. It struck me just above my eyebrow i can now feel quite a significant deep dent in my forehead . although not massively painful it is very uncomfortable and when i press into it i get tingling down the side of my face. Im worried about what this could be. do you think this is just as a result of the inflammation or could there be a fracture ...

I think you should get x ray of the scalp to make sure that there is nothing wrong with the bone. there are chances of hair line fracture with such injuries. Also apply ice and take Brufen tablet for pain relief. If there is any giddiness or vomiting then you may need a CT scan.
