Have severe pain and cough. Had a hit earlier. X rays and scans done. Is it to be taken serious?

In October of 2012 I suffered a closed end concussion just behind my left temple as a result of being hit with a line drive baseball. I did lose consciousness and was transported to the trauma center. Fortunately all x-rays and scans were negative for bleeding and/or brain swelling. Now 6 months later I have this horrific cough and when I cough I get a sever pain where I was hit in the head. Also, I have developed an indentation where I was hit. Should I be concerned?

Thank you for posting your query.
Your current symptoms are unlikely to be related to the past head injury.
Also, there is no need to worry about the indentation at the site of injury.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
