Doubt: If you had a brain damage then, it would have manifested itself by now. The bump you are feeling is most likely coming from the outer structures - skin, underlying fat tissue, fascia or perhaps, bone, but not the brain. A ct scan of the head or ultrasound might be helpful to figure this out.
