How to take this lump above my ear ?

Hi. Two days ago as I was sleeping I fell off my bed. I hit my head on the corner of a table. Now I have a swollen lump just above the right ear . It hurts, but I haven t got any other medical condition . What can I try to make the lump disappear? I am 49 yo, 5 10 , 85 kg., and I m taking an anti-depressant (Sesaren XR 150 mg.).
