Sure, i've heard of cerebral contusion. But now that my child may have it, I want to know what it really does to the body.?

In brief: Bruising of brain

Cerebral contusion is a trauma to the brain tissue, like bruising of cerebral tissue.
In a young person who is well without any changes in function the changes are that there will be no sequela, although epileptic seizures may follow cerebral contusion in some cases.

In brief: Depends on location

The effect of a cerebral contusion depends on location and size of the contusion (bruise).
You should speak to your doctor or a Pediatric Neurologist to get more information.
