Injured forehead, bump on skull, swelling. Will it leave?

I fell and injured my forehead . I went to emergency to have it checked and everything was fine. It s been three weeks now and the skull has a raised bump there even though the swelling and pain is gone. Is this normal and when will it go away or will it remain. Thank You, Catherine

General Surgeon 's  Response
The bump is called Haematoma,which will be resolved spontaneously.
As there is no pain,it is not infected
If it still persists after few weeks,get it incised by your surgeon and let the fluid out.
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health and speedy recovery
