Not much to worry: These soft bumps are quite common after head injuries that u described. Nothing much to worry about. If there is some bleeding inside the bump it may make skin around your eyes discolored because of blood seeping into the eyelids due to gravity. Some danger signals to look out for are : vomiting, severe headaches, blurred vision, which shd prompt you to see medical attention should they occur. ...Read more

I have a small bump on my forehead. It has been there for a few months now. It's also hard (not soft). What are the possible diagnostics?

A different cyst :-): And now to answer your corrected question- this could be an inclusion cyst, epithelial cyst, or wen. All are similar names for a cyst which is made when the glands that secrete oil into the skin coalese in to a balloon- they squirt a thick waxy white substance called cebum into the balloon which feels hard when pushed together. This can be easily removed surgically in office to prevent recurrence. ...Read more

What is it when you have a huge bump with little puss bumps on top of it on my forehead?

Visualization needed: Honestly, it's hard to say without seeing it in person. Is it red, sore, warm to touch? It's possible that it's a skin infection with abscess formation, but it could also be a form of acne. Again, without examining it, it's hard to say for sure. You might want to have your doctor look at it. ...Read more

Can there be anything I can do to get rid of a bump on my forehead from an accident?

Forehead: It really depends. A bump on the forehead could be from a fracture of the bone of your forehead to a bruise or even a hematoma (collection of blood deep to the skin) in the soft tissues, like the muscle, of the forehead. Also, it depends on the timing of your accident. If your accident was recent, a bruise is likely and this can bet better with applying heat or ice. Have someone evaluate. ...Read more

Surgical removal: The bump you had initially seems to be an infected sebaceous cyst (oil gland). The infection is gone without coming to head. When this happens it often leaves behind a firm cyst. The skin on it also often looks dark. Over a period it usually gets smaller and may go away. The best way to get rid of it is surgical removal, more for the cosmetic reasons, often not covered by insurances ...Read more

Could be a: Cyst or any number of other nodular skin lesions.
