Have bulging blood vessel on temple. Had been hit there. Cure?

I have a blood vessel on my left temple bulging out. It was never this way before. I got hit there about a month ago and ever since it has been swollen and bulged out. Its quite obvious. It was painful and first, but not so much anymore. I can see it like pulsating with my heartbeat . Even feel it at times. Why is this happening? Can it be fixed?

It may be hematoma. Apply ice frequently. If not subside in few weeks, go to surgeon for the perfect diagnosis and treatment.
