it is the injury that is dangerous a simple fall also can cause this. you need to be very careful about this as it will bleed inside it is not visible also. only CT scan of brain can find it so you need to get the CT scan of brain as soon as possible and consult neurosurgeon immediately

yes it is very dangerous in fact peoeple die in no time before they are shifted to hospital. many times there are no neurosurgeons to operate and they will die. it is some vessel break and bleeding in the brain following injury to head

Yes, it is because it can interfere with the blood supply to the vital parts of the brain and can result in Stroke.
