Head injury, feeling sick and dizzy. Soft bump on forehead. Cause for concern?

Hi I hit my head on a low beam today which has happened several times I m the last month as I ve moved to a very old house. I think I had mild Concussion as I felt sick and dizzy. I feel a lot better now but as well as the bump I gave a dent in my forehead in the centre of the bump which is very soft. Is this dent cause for serious concern?

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that there is no cause of concern based on your symptoms.

The bump is likely to be a small scalp hematoma (collection of blood in the soft tissues over the skull bone). This would resolve on its own in a few days.

As you said, your symptoms are due to a mild concussion injury. You can take betahistine tablets to reduce dizziness.

Wishing you good health,
