Eye injury, red and hard lump between eyebrow and eyelid. Headache. Advice?

As I was bending over to pick up my friend s thrashing Jack Russell Terrier, my right eye made direct impact with the back of a dogs head. The back of his head fit perfectly into my right eye socket. strong body, strong impact. The hit resulted in a hard red, purple lump forming between my eyebrow and eyelid . My eyelid is beginning to shut. I also have a headache . I had ice on the bump for approximately an hour but the lump continued growing. Advise?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that you suffered an eye injury and having a lump between eye brow and eye lid. This indicates hematoma because of collection of blood in the layers of the skin of the eyelids.
This will decrease over 3-4 weeks and applying cold compression will help. Along with this anti-inflammatory drugs will help in early resolution of the lump.

Thank you
