Dr. Erik Borncamp answered:

After blunt force trauma to my head, there is a random bump remaining. Could this be a clot?

Unlikely, but...

Head
it depends how long its been. And either way, if you are feeling it it is clearly OUTSIDE of your skull so would not affect your brain (different than a clot on the brain) Many traumas can result in a nodule or lump of scar tissue that u can feel. these are benign

What is perforating blunt force trauma?

Unusual term

Intestine
This is an odd expression. Trauma is usually considered to be blunt (blunt force) or penetrating (stab, gunshot). It is possible for blunt trauma to the abdominal area to be so severe that it can cause perforation of the intestine.
