If I treat bleeding outside of the brain will it be gone, or do I need to keep worrying? I have so much on my mind.

In brief: Inside or outside
Bleeding inside the skull can exert pressure on the brain, deforming it, causing serious side-effects.
Headaches are almost universal here. Brain irritation can cause seizures. Blood can be resorbed naturally but stay alert. Blood outside the skull may be a painful cosmetic nuisance but is rarely serious.
