Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.


It appears like just a bruise.
Internal bleeding would have caused severe head ache, persistent vomiting, seizures and even loss of consciousness. Since none of these happened, it is unlikely to be XXXXXXX bleeding.

Take tylenol for pain relief.

I hope that answers your question.
