Tender reddish bump on the head after a fall. Need immediate medical attention?

I fell off a CT scan bench yesterday and hit my head on the cabinet as I hit the floor. The bump on the back of my head is very tender. My daughter says this it is a red bump with many small red dots in that location. Do I need to go to the doctor? I don't think there is anything they can do? Thank you so much. Lynn Cruickshank

it look like just bruise only
there is nothing to worry about it .
just apply antibiotic cream over it .
for pain you can take analgesic medicine also
if you feel giddiness . vomiting ,eye problem ,better to consult doctor without delay
