In brief: "Goose-egg"

This is a bruise- called a "goose-egg" on the head.
Because there is not much room between the scalp and the skull, any swelling pushes outward, instead of inside the tissue as a bruise would do. Put an ice pack on to decrease the swelling and pain. Watch your child for any signs of vomiting, confusion, loss of coordination, or other concerns- call your doctor if these occur.
