The bump may not: Go away completely and that's not uncommon for a severe bruise. The lump is just a cosmetic issue and does not signify any internal structural damage on the brain.

How long do the symptoms of a concussion last? I was in an accident a week ago and my head is still pounding
Concussion: Concussion headache can remain for many months. You need to have cognitive as well as physical rest.

Either way you should be evaluated after any head injury and have the appropriate work up depending on your history. ...Read more

Ive fallen sometimes, and a couple of days ago i fell and hit my head, the front of it, had a bump, so why do i have a bump on the back too? curious
Hmm, 2 bumps: The fall that you sustained a bump for in the front, unless you also hit the back would not be related. Because you have a history of many falls, you may have fallen in the past and sustained that posterior "bump." More importantly, because you fall often-See your Doctor and get an evaluation, so you can be appropriately diagnosed and treated for your fall risk issues. Best wishes! ...Read more

Hematoma...: What you describe is a hematoma. A hematoma is a collection of blood, usually clotted, outside of a blood vessel that may occur because of an injury to the wall of a blood vessel allowing blood to leak out into tissues where it does not belong. A large hematoma can sometimes take a couple of months to resorb, and rarely may need surgery to resolve it. ...Read more
6 years ago i hit my head on the pavement and bled for a couple days. the spot is still sensitive when I touch it. is this bad?
No.: Any injury can cause damage to the superficial nerves in the skin and they may never recover from it. Sometimes people who get a shot in their arm or leg have an area of numbness just from that, that never goes away. It is not common, but it does happen and if it only causes minor symptoms, like sensitivity to touch, it is often no big deal. See your doc to verify it's nothing. ...Read more
Was in a car accident 12 hours ago. I do not remember hitting my head except for my face on the airbag. Now my temple is sensitive, should I see a doc?
Not necessarily.: If you did not lose consciousness and do not have progressive or focal neurologic deficits you are likely just fine. It is very common to feel worse several hours after trauma as the excitement wears off and the pain sets in. ...Read more
Got a concussion several months ago, the symptoms went away, but tonight i hit my head on a pipe. so worried the headaches will return. Should I be?
Possibly : every person is different in the way a concussion and subsequent head traumas affect them. If the recent incident was without true concussion symptoms (I.e. Loss of consciousness, confusion, amnesia, disorientation), then it is less likely that your headaches will return. However if they do, I would recommend a consultation by a neurologist. ...Read more
