What could be reason of sensitive spot on the forehead after having nearly drowned ?

About three years ago while i was swimming i nearly drown and every since then i have had a sensitive spot in my fore head and was wondering if the water that went up my nose could be my problem. the main time that it hurts is when its being touched. when touched it is very sensitive.

Hello, my grandmother is 62 years old and startled me today when she showed me a large dent in her forehead! She was moving to a new house and walked into a very heavy, low hanging light fixture and it nearly knocked her out. This was about a year ago but she never mentioned this dent to me until today. (I honestly forgot about it after a while) The dent is literally in the center of her upper forehead near her hairline and is about 2 inches in diameter. I m terrified about this! She s a two time severe stroke survivor so I don t know if that is a factor. Please let me know if this should be a concern and if there s anything we can do to fix it.
