Swollen bump behind ear, bleeding from ear after fight. Get headache on movement. Hearing is fine. Matter of concern?

I was in a violent fight in which I took several blows to the side and back of my head. There is a huge swollen bump behind my left ear and it was bleeding during the fight i was not aware at the time due to the situation, after the fight i noticed there was blood coming from within my ear and deep inside. I get bad headaches whenever i stand up or move that side of my neck . I think i can hear fine but should i be concerned now or sleep it off and wait untill tomorrow before i take further action?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You should seek help as soon as possible.
Bleeding out of the ear is not necessarily from the ear.
There could be internal injury (Bone and brain).
You should see Ear specialist AND Neurosurgeon.
You may need CT scan of the head and neck

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
