Fight Of The Century: Here is a perfect opportunity to tell friends you got jumped by six thugs on the street and fought all of them off and walked away with nothing but a small bump on your head. I suggest this because I have every confidence you'll be OK. But...if the headache keeps getting worse or you start vomiting or your vision gets blurry,things like that,get someone to take you to the ER. Otherwise use Tylenol (acetaminophen) ...Read more

Yes. Have her seen.: It's so easy to have a baby roll over or scoot off a bed or changing table. The facts that she is acting normally and cried right away - stopping with being picked up, are all reassuring. But i'd advise you to have your seven-week-old evaluated in the er just in case.

I hit my head on a gate latch while bending over to pick something up. It got a small knot which is now squishy. Should I be concerned?

I hit my head on a gate latch while bending over to pick something up. It got a small knot which is now squishy. Should I be concerned?

Probably not: If you did not pass out, do not have severe headaches and feel normal as far as mood then it is probably just some bruising under the scalp. It should resolve in a week or so. If you did lose consciousness or if you are having severe headaches, visual changes or mood changes see a doctor right away. ...Read more

I have a swollen knot above the middle of my right eyebrow.Hit my head hard there 9mnths ago..It's small, but ugly. Advice?

Have it checked out: When you hit your head, you may have had bleeding there. If it formed a blood clot, it can leave a residual knot on the surface of the skull which you feel as the small knot. Hard to say whether it will eventually flatten out or not. There are also other things it could be. Have it checked out by a surgeon. ...Read more

My 8 year old just hit back of her head on the corner of the porcelain sink. She has a small knot and is tender and painful. Will she be ok?

Yes: As long as she is awake and alert, she should be fine. If she begins to cry, complain of pain, develop an inability to touch her chest with her chin without exquisite pain, or develops problems with speech, walking, loss of use of part of her body, go to the er. If you have any concerns by morning, call her pediatrician. In fact, you may wish to do that now. Injury is insignificant by descriptio. ...Read more

Head trauma: Hello there, if you simply bumped your head then you should not be alarmed. However, if you feel this was a traumatic injury and you blacked out, passed out, feel like you were seeing stars or you have a severe headache you should seek emergency medical assistance immediately. It is possible that you have sustained a concussion but it is not possible to diagnose without seeing a doctor for help. ...Read more
