Hard lump, bruise under the skin after hitting head, very painful. Medication required?

I walked into the corner of a cabinet at some force around 3-4 weeks ago, the bruise was black and bad and when disappeared left a hard lump under the skin. Yesterday the bruising re-appeared not to the extent it had been but it is very painful again and the lump underneath the skin seems to have reduced in size! Do I need to go the doctors or should I just take aspirin to thin my blood as a precaution?

hi, thanks for your query.

The hard lump after trauma could be due fibrosis as a part of healing process of the damaged internal tissues.

Reappearance of bruise might be due to trivial trauma which you might have not noticed.
Aspirin can lead to easy bruising so it is not advisable.
you may consult a doctor so that it can be examined properly for exact diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Hope this helps.
