If you did not fall from the hit, you are unlikely to have injured your brain. The hematoma, "goose egg" will resolve with time. After a couple of days warm fomentation may facilitate the process.

Minor closed head injuries are very common, and not unusual to experience scalp bruising. See a doctor if increasing headaches, blurring or doubling of vision, nausea and/or vomiting, dizziness and/or imbalance, episodes of loss of consciousness.
