This may be a scalp hematoma. A CT scan of head may be done.
Thanks for being in follow-up.
I am not talking here in context with subdural hematoma. Subdural hematoma is blood collection inside skull and not outside the skull. I meant scalp hematoma in your case. Scalp hematoma may get infected and result in abscess formation. That's why I said that it must be examined by a surgeon to avoid any complications. However, if the trauma was so intense a CT scan of head may be done to rule out subdural hematoma as well.
Hope that I have answered your query. If you have some further questions, I shall be glad to have you in follow-up or else please close the thread, rate it and write a review.
