My 13 yr old daughter hit head. Bump appeared on forehead within minutes. 4 weeks later it's still slightly raised. How can we get rid of it completely?

Time sensitive: Some of these represent a calcium deposit under the scalp left over from the blood/bone irritation of the original injury. I have seen it take a year for these to fade. Rarely, a cosmetic surgeon can enter the area via a cut in the eyebrow and scrape off the excess, but it may re-accumulate. The best approach is to give it time. ...Read more

Yes, see ophthal: You should see an ophthalmologist as soon as you can. You may have broken bones around your eye socket. You may also have blood inside of your eye from the trauma. Until you get to doctor cold compresses for first 24 hours and Ibuprofen will help to decrease the swelling.. ...Read more

What's the first sign of a chronic hematomo and how bad is the headache I just feel like I cant focus hit head a month ago urgent care said mild concus?

What's the first sign of a chronic hematomo and how bad is the headache I just feel like I cant focus hit head a month ago urgent care said mild concus?

Go to the ER: If you are still having symptoms 1 month after a head injury and you didn't get a CT scan then you need the scan. It is unlikely to show obvious injury but if it does that's a big deal. Rule of thumb is that if you didn't get knocked out, remember the entire event, have a normal neurologic exam, and were not intoxicated then you are probably OK. Your problem is still acute, not chronic. ...Read more

I hit my head a month ago was leaned over trash can stood up real fast hit head on cabnet no black out or bump worried about chronic subderal hematomo?

I hit my head a month ago was leaned over trash can stood up real fast hit head on cabnet no black out or bump worried about chronic subderal hematomo?

Unlikely: Are you having weakness on one side of your body or seizures? If you are not, I wouldn't worry about a subdural hematoma. You're a 27-year-old, which isn't the typical type of person we see with chronic subdural hematomas. They're more often seen in babies, the elderly, and alcoholics. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I have warm feeling in the left side in the back of my head and in forehead I don't have any other symptoms.

No worries: Not sure how to explain your symptoms. But unless you also have severe headaches, change in your vision, weakness or strange feelings in an arm or leg, fever, nausea or seizures, or you use street drugs, you'll probably be ok. If any of those things, then see a doctor. ...Read more

Hit head, only had headache for few months, then they stopped, I hit it again, and now ache and fog there for even longer. Worried it won't heal?

Hit head, only had headache for few months, then they stopped, I hit it again, and now ache and fog there for even longer. Worried it won't heal?

"Ache" and "fog": Presumably it will "heal" although it may take longer, depends on the length of time between the two hits and how hard you hit your head, there's really nothing you can do but wait (and try to keep from hitting your head so often, or keep a bicycle helmet with you). ...Read more

Hit head 5 months ago hard on the corner of a locker. Was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia. I just barely hit my head again. Am I OK? Slight HA

Sounds ok: "Barely hit my head" sounds minor enough that nothing should become of it. As they say, "Don't sweat the small stuff, " but do worry if one gets a giant smack on the head. ...Read more

Having concussion headaches after getting it months ago. And yesterday I hit head in roof of a car while my friend hit a small hole. Should I be ok?

Yes, you will be ok: Often a mild re-injury like this makes some of the old post-concussion symptoms return, but there is no significant risk that you will not recover quickly from this. No need for concern! ...Read more

In a car accident about 4 months ago (didn't hit head, or pass out) but I started getting these episodes of zoning out like 5-6 times a day. Seizures?

Get eval: Even without true "hitting of the head", trauma from the force exerted on the head/brain can still cause a type of post concussive syndrome, so it best you get evaluated by a neurologist with your symptoms for either that condition or seizure disorders. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Feeling pulsating sensations in head, zoning out 1 month after car accident...didn't hit head or get knocked out what could this be?

Passed out, Hit head& had 5 sec seizure. Minor concussion after. 3 months later my head pounds while/after physically exerting myself. What shouldido?

Testing is needed: This is not just a concussion, since you passed out first. This history is important. Some of the conditions that cause loss of consciousness can cause exercise intolerance. Namely, blood vessel problems or heart problems would be evaluated for here. Perhaps this has been done? Hope that helps! ...Read more

Getting episodes of zoning out 5-6 times a day 2 months after car accident (didn't hit head or get knocked out) could these episodes be seizure? Help!

Possibly: Seizures can absolutely present with episodic "zoning out". It is odd that these symptoms would occur after a non-traumatic car accident. See your doctor for a proper evaluation. ...Read more

My 19 month old just hit hit head really hard but is running around laughing and playing but there is a small bump should I get him checked out?

No knockout/no pbm: The trauma that knocks you out, even briefly, has produced a concussion.If the trauma wasn't enough to cause even brief loss of function is minor. A bump coming out, means he has a blood pocket under the scalp, but should do fine. Some will throw up once or seem dazed with a headache.If he starts vomiting multiple times, I would have him seen. ...Read more

Likely safe: If you are not experiencing adverse symptoms such as severe headaches, dizziness, blurring or double vision, repetitive nausea and vomiting, or difficulty with balance or coordination, there seems little reason to be concerned. Typically post-concessional features last no more than 4-6 weeks. ...Read more

My 7 month old hit head, ER doc said she's ok-minor trauma. Is xray necessary in this case? How can I know for sure there isn't any brain or skull damage

Head trauma: Your doctor has checked your child and found only minor trauma. You should not worry as long as baby is fine. Taking xrays, which would be a ct scan delivers a lot of x radiation to the infant which can be harmful, and radiation stays in the body indefinitely. Do not take xrays unless very necessary. ...Read more

I'm dizzy when walking and sitting/ laying down and have cold feet and warm neck and forehead. Plus stuffy head feeling... Is this the flu?

Probably not: If you have no fever, aches, this is a vasovagal syncope episode or fainting feeling that occurs when your blood pressure falls. This occurs when dehydrated or fast change of position. Change position slowly and hydration is important and the symptoms should calm down. ...Read more

Headaches: As physicians we try to put all the symptoms and aspects of he history to come together to diagnose a one single condition. However, it is possible that in your case, you are dealing with three different unrelated problems. I am glad you have the appointment scheduled to check the scalp. That is a start. ...Read more
