I got elbowed in the forehead and received a big bump and a black eye. The black eye went away but I still have a bump there. It's been almost a month?

Probably..: The bump was a hematoma (collection of blood under the skin.) these will often become fibrotic (scarred) and last for months. They are almost never permanent. You may be able to hasten the disappearance with gentle massage of the lump. I would give it about 6 months to disappear before doing anything else. ...Read more

Were there X-rays: You might have suffered a fracture over the zygomatic arch or over the orbit, and this could explain delay, but lingering symptoms could afflict the supra-orbital or infra-orbital branches of the trigeminal nerve.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the lesion. What you described suggests a wart. You may wish to try over the counter treatment for a wart, if that does not help, it would be useful to see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
