I hit the back of my head on kitchen tile

I hit the back of my head on kitchen tile 10 weeks ago when I tripped and fell backward, which resulted in a brain bleed and subdural hematoma. After 3 days in the neuro trauma unit of the hospital, I was released and have recovered well. The huge lump on the back of my scalp is now about the size of a bean, but is still hard and covered with what appears to be crusty blood. Any idea how much longer it will remain. My primary doctor told me to just leave it alone during my follow-up visit, but I am wondering if there is something that can be done to remove this from my scalp, or how long it will be before it is gone. Thanks for any advise.

HI, about 10 minutes ago, i hit my head on my kitchen tile floor. I have a small bump on the back of my head, a bit stiffness in my neck and my right eye as a little blurry (but it normal now). I fell from a height of about 5 feet. Do I need to see a doctor?

I had a nasty fall in my kitchen yesterday head hit the corner of the kitchen wall pretty hard. I first felt pain in the top right part of my head but there was no visible bump, so I treated with an ice pack for about 2 hours. Well, the pain spread to the back of my head and then to the back of my neck. Feels like it s going into my back/spine. I didn t lose consciousness or anything...I ve been normal for the most part, just the pain is travelling down towards my back. What could this be?

I was cleaning my kitchen blinds and lost my balance and feel backwards and hit the bottom back of my head on the wood floor, I did not black out nor did I have a headache but I did get a lump after I applied Ice for hours the bump went down, my pupils are normal and I have not thrown up, are there any other symptoms I should watch for, I have not gone to the doctor because of financial concerns.
