Scalp contusion: The slight pain is expected and should be localized to the area of impact.

I hit my head on a cabinet yesterday and my head still hurts. Is this something I should be concerned about?
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

Depends: You didn't mention if you passed out after hitting your head. If you had any other symptoms immediately following like blurry vision or nausea or problems remembering things, you had a concussion. We consider mild concussion much more seriously than before. Repeat concussions can cause traumatic brain injury. I would consider getting evaluated, especially if any symptoms continue. ...Read more
I hit my head on my shelf in my room, and it was slightly bleeding but not anymore. It happened about 2 hours ago, but I show no symptoms am I okay?
I think your: Ok. There's probably no underlying damage. If we all went to the er for a head ct every time we bumped it, healthcare costs would be even greater. Professional boxers don't go in for a head ct after every fight; not yet at least. I can't say u don't have a skull fracture or that your not gonna have a concussion. It sound kinda like u bumped your head in the way millions do every day. Gdluc. ...Read more
