User :   Hi 2 days ago while driving my car my dog banged her head on the side of my head. nothing happened that day. Yesterday however i developed a low dull headache and naseau(havnt thrown up). I felt the side of my head where the dog hit and its red and painful. Is this a sign of a concussion? im kinda worried about a brain tumor.
