Is Urgent Care Required For Swelling In The Face Due To Minor Injury?

I ran into my wall right on the corner and have a very swollen lip and visible swelling above the eye along with a headache. Is it necessary to go to the er or urgent care. I wasn't knocked out but was a bit disoriented throughout the day. YYYY@YYYY

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As you are a bit disoriented for a day , you should see a local doctor at emergency for evaluation. As per your symptoms , injury appears to be minor but all head injury with symptoms beside headache should be evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
