Head injury, loss of consciousness, dents on head, growing in size, headaches, nose bleeds. Cause of worry?

I fell on my head after losing consciousness about 2-3mths ago. A mth ago I noticed two small dents on the top right hand side of my head without any hair on that area. I taught it was just stress so I just let it be but I checked again a wk ago and noticed that the dents has gotten bigger and covered with hair. I ve been having occasional right ear pain, frequent headaches , giddiness as and when, and had an on and off nose bleed for 3 days a mth ago. Should I be concerned?

Hi thanks for your question.
Yes,Please don't take your symptoms lightly.Most probably you have got fracture of skull bone whic is responsible for dent, along with haematoma (collection of blood under skin) which is increasing in size.Dizziness,frequent headache could be due to haematoma from bleeding inside your brain.Ear pain and frequent nose bleed could be part of fracture of skull bone.I would suggests you to consult a general surgeon who may get your CTscan head done to rule out or confirm any fracture of skull bone or haematoma inside your brain.Finally you may need consultation with neurosurgeon if there is haematoma or fracture on CT scan.
Hope this answers your question.
