If you did not lose consciousness, you may put ice on the lump, After a day or so warm fomentation will help in the resolution of the blood in the tissue/hematoma. Please seek assistance from a mental health provider to deal with your self-destructive behaviour. Wish you good health!

I too would focus on dealing with self destructive behavior, and suggest seeking appropriate counseling. I doubt you have caused any intracranial problems other than superficial scalp trauma. If blurred or double vision, dizziness or imbalance, nausea or vomiting, progressive headache, etc., seek medical attention.
