Have pain behind ear, had a hit previously, was swollen, dazed, confused. Will get worse?


I had a bang to the head by a falling rock/stone, behind my left ear about 10 years ago..It was quite swollen at the time.. I was dazed and confused but not unconcious.. There was no break to the skin.
I have recently had some slight aching pain around that same area. No dizziness or headaches though, only aching around that part. Could this issue get worse as I get older and what options do I have to get it checked out properly?

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unlikely that your 10-year old injury is causing your symptoms now. If you have any scan or medical reports of that time, it would help us to determine its significance.

As of now, there is no need to worry, and also, there is no risk in future because of old trauma. For pain relief, you may take ibuprofen or indomethacin capsules.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
