I was hit on the head with a brick atleast 20yrs ago and since then a lump the size of a golf ball is there. It's really hard. What's it's medical name?
Bump: It hasn't changed, and it's from trauma to your skull. That's awfully big. Please have it checked by a doctor, and don't delay. Make sure it isn't something else that's growing. Also it could be benign, and be a sebaceous cyst or lipoma. Either way, you need to have it checked out to find out what it is. Take care. ...Read more

I slipped in the shower a month ago and hit my head on the wall. It was swollen pretty big but now there's a hard lump there. Do I have a tumor?
You have a HEMATOMA essentially a collection of clotted blood under your scalp! It will resolve slowly as the body repairs itself!
Hope this helps!

My son is 13 and hit his head hard against a wall playing basketball. Is this serious as he has no symptoms and only has a lump that hurts when touch.
Keep watch x24 hours: Fortunately the brain fits more solidly inside the skull of a 13 y/o comparing to a 73 etc... So often bumping head against hard surface causes a big bruise/bump which will resolve. Since he has no other symptom, he should be ok. But, I would keep an eye on him--if has increasing headache, nausea/vomiting, dizziness over next 24 hrs, contact doc asap. Otherwise, he should do well. Good luck. ...Read more
I hit my head over 2 weeks ago. And now I have a hard lump exactly where I hit it. I have been getting bad headaches since but the lump just appeared?
See your Doctor: Hard to say for sure. You need to have a physical examination of the problem at the very least. Possibly you weren't aware of the "bump", there could be delayed bleeding. Headaches are common after head trauma. There are meds which can reduce the intensity and frequency of those headaches-ask your doctor. Avoid repeated analgesics like ibu or aspirin. Get it checked out. ...Read more

Hit my upper leg on edge of table very hard a month ago. Had a huge bruise and pain but it's gone. Now I touch & feel a hard lump under skin. Hematoma?
WeAllTakeOurLumps: Yes, it could be what remains of a hematoma under the skin. That lump could be there for a few months but the body absorbs most or all of it. Nothing dangerous. Sometimes some scar remains forever but shouldn't be a problem unless you can see it and it bothers you. But, if it starts growing or begins to hurt or the skin discolors, get it checked out. ...Read more
Hit face on box. Had bruising and swelling under eye and cheek. Bruising completely gone but now I have a hard disfiguring lump on cheek?

I hit my shin hard resulted in a small gash and huge bruise. Day 7 hurts only if touched (pain 10+ for 3 mins), still small lump, skin numb, walk fine.

Last year I felt from a mororbike hitting my head on the right, a few months later I get dizzy if I turn to the left what can it be, also lump abreast?
Garbled: Sorry, but your post is very difficult to understand. It appears that you are making three separate statements: 1) Mororbike, 2) get dizzy, and 3) lump abreast your breast; each of which is unrelated to the other two. However, to be certain, you should repost your question with assistance from a native speaker of English. ...Read more
Hard lump on head is fixed not mobile. Two doctors have said cyst to ignore it but it's hard and under skin doesn't feel like a cyst Should I see 3rd?
Lump: The question is do you know what a cyst feels like? If two doctors have examined you and said it is a cyst, what happens when you go to the third and he says it is a cyst? Do you then go to the fourth? You either need at some point to believe them or not. If you don't believe them then do you keep going to doctors until you find one that tells you what you want? Get it removed! ...Read more
