Swelling in the right side of the forehead after banging, pressure and dull pain. Solution?

I fell last Friday night and hit my head on the arm of a chair. My head immediatelt swelled to size of a ping pong ball. Now, 1 week later the lump is still there yet smaller in size. I have bruised the whole right side of my forehead and it is traveling down the side of my eye. I have pressure and dull pain still. I cannot remember things. Am I out of the woods since it has been a week? Tonia Sullivan

Signs of serious head injury are loss of conciousness, projectile vomiting, visual problems, high blood pressure and slow heart rate. If you dont have any of these problems you are safe and only need antiinflamatory medication. Thanx and take care.
