Hit head and nose on a pole, lump on forehead, sore nose, tingling. Any damage to nose ?

Hello, I hit my head and nose on a pole two weeks ago. I still have a lump on my forehead and my nose is still sore, swollen, and everytime I touch my nose it tingles. My main concern is if I should be worried that the lump on my forehead is still painful even if it has not been touched? Also with my nose have I done damage? I know you probably need to see me in order to diagnose but your opinion would be great!

Although it is always better to be physically examined by the doctor but going by your history,it suggests that you may be having some local collection of blood on your forehead causing the bump.
Just do some local hot fomentation and take some anti inflammatory like ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day for 4 to 5 days.
I hope your symptoms should settle down soon.
