Pounding in the head with a lump formation after a fall. Bruise on the back of the head. Is there a bleeding in the brain?

So I fell backwards on Friday night and smacked my head against a door. It s now Monday night and my head is pounding. I have a lump and a tender bruise on the back of my head and when I step too hard it feels like it s jolting my brain. I m just a bit panicky as it s so uncomfortable nearly 72 hours on. Is it just the bruising coming out or is my brain bleeding .
