Swelling on side of head after falling. Reduces briefly when slept on hard surfaces. Solution?

Hi i hit my head hard on the road around october last year! There was only swelling on the side of my head which isn t visible unless it is felt! But while i tried reducing the swelling, it got larger everyday! The hair of the affected dropped off and it is so visible that i wear a cap everyday. The lump reduces whenever i rest the swollen part on the rug or carpet at times, but returns to its size after some minutes! It looks awful when i look into the mirror, is there anything that can be done to it

Hi, it appearsto be the head injury, caused by the hit, You are to be under supervision of a doctor, and an M.R.I. may be needed to exclude the head injury. If it is only a bruice, formed by the hit, it can be cured by the treatment by antibiotics and anti inflamatories. Thank you.
