Worrisome: Headache after any head injury can represent underlying hemorrhage / hematoma around brain coverings! Could just be a bruise. May not necessarily require any specific treatment but it is always good to get it checked, especially if it is a matter of one's head!

Get examined: this sounds like posterior occipital adenopathy of a growth in your scalp- in either case, you must be examined, evaluated, diagnosed and treated.
