Hi, welcome to HealthcareMagic.

The head injury would have caused a hematoma or edema, which may be the cause of pain. Use an ice pack on the injured area. Watch out for any loss of consciousness, vomiting or severe head ache, and if so, consult a surgeon immediately. A CT scan may have to be taken then, to rule out any intra cranial injury.
