Could a head dent be due to concussion or a cerebellum stroke?
I suffered a tia stroke due to high blood pressure as an infant but throughout the years I get punishment by my mother who keeps hitting my head. Years later, I discovered a dent on the left side of head and sometimes it feels sensitive. Did I suffered a concussion or is this part of a left cerebellum stroke I had as an infant?

Well when some body have got stroke in very early age of life. The damage in brain will also heal up as the person grow since the brain tissue are still growing so I don't feel it is because of your infant stroke attack. Now to rule it out what it is need to get examine physical and check. If there is too much sensitivity and pain then I suggest you to take scan also. It may be you might have hit somewhere and you don't remember now. Don't worry there is nothing looks like emergency but for proper cause to know you need to visit a doctor. Take care.
