Get seen soon!: If these symptoms just started, or are getting worse, go to an ER. If they have been happening over a couple of weeks and are not getting worse, get seen in the next few days. It's hard to say what's going on. Your symptoms may not be related to your injury but to something new. Either way you need prompt evaluation.

Evaluation needed: People just don't faint or have syncope for no reason. The simplest one is vasovagal but that still has to be determined. There are rhythm abnormalities that can run in families or de novo. It is best to see the doctor for evaluation.

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.

Likely concussion: The tinnitus and dizziness could be from a concussion especially if it is not localized to one ear. Concussion symptoms will improve over time. If it is one ear then you might have labyrinthine concussion where the force delivered to the temporal bone that houses the ear causes hearing loss, tinnitus, and vertigo. See ENT if just one side. More importantly is why u passed out. Discuss with pcp.

BPPV: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is one possibility. Often patients find that feels like room spins when they roll over in one direction in bed. These are brief dizziness attacks due to otoliths (stones) in ear that are out of place. It is treatable and can be treated using exercises called the Epley maneuver that you can find online and do.
