Depends: The bulge our your head will probably improve in a week or two. The bigger question is whether you sustained a concussion or head injury. Anyone who hits their head and experiences any symptoms (ie. Headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting) should be evaluated. Any athlete suspected of having a concussion should not return to sport until cleared by a sports professional.
