Head injury, knot behind head, nausea, dizziness, trouble talking. Concussion symptoms?

My 26 year old daughter was horsing around with a friend and he dropped her. She fell on the back of her head, on a concrete floor, causing a knot the size of a golf ball on the left back side of her head.This happened two days ago. She said that she has been very nauseous and that she gets dizzy, if she turns her head quickly. She also said that she is having trouble talking, with gibberish sometimes coming out. To me it sounds like she has a concussion . Would a concussion on the this side of her head affect her speach? Should she see a doctor? She lives in

Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.
I suggest she should consult doctor at the earliest possible. Further investigations should be done to identify if there is any internal bleed.
Such head injury should not be neglected.
Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
