Depends: There is all degrees of "bumping". You could bump your head in a minor fashion passing though a tight hallway or be blown against it in an explosion. If you fell off the bed of a truck & sustained brain damage you would expect loss of some function. However, we know that many kids head bang as a self soothing practice & grow up to be fine. So in many instances there is no effect. ...Read more
Likely nothing: If the bump appeared at the time of your injury it is likely a simple hematoma, mild bleeding under the skin. The majority of the time this resolves relatively quickly. Sometimes, however, the blood organizes almost like a scar and takes longer to be reabsorbed by the body. It is not anything to worry about medically just more of a cosmetic issue. It may take months for complete resolution. ...Read more

My 2 yr old bangs his head on walls and the floor he does it to where his nose bleeds and he has bruises and big bumps on his head what do I do?
Positive ignoring: Head banging is just an amplification of early infant fussing. It peaks in preverbal years. I've never heard or seen a head banger with a real head injury. This likely caught on when he noticed it grabbed your attention. If you ignore it (don't lock eyes), watching him out of peripheral vision, for safety, it should fade over time. Teaching some sign language may help with the frustration. ...Read more
