Hello. it is true that the injury occured two years ago, but it is very important to go to the hospital. you should have gone long ago. the dent in your head means you probably had a fracture or deformation of your frontal bone. the headaches may be a strong sign theat the deplaced bone is compressing a part of your brain. please go to the hospital as soon as it is possible for your doctor to check th severityof the dent. you may even need to do a scan. i wish you the best
