Thanks for staying Online.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

Well, it could be related with a hematoma. It is the collection of blood outside of a blood vessel.
Also such bump can be a tiny, with just a dot of blood or it can be large and cause significant swelling.
You should continue with ice packs and take adequate rest.

For associated pain you can take OTC painkiller -Motrin.
You should apply ice packs for 10-15 minutes for atleast 3 times a day. And usually symptoms will start disappearing by its own.

The serious symptoms, which are associated with head injury are- Seizures, Weakness in arm or leg, Dilated pupils, bleeding or fluid discharge from ear or nose. It is good to hear that you don't have any such serious symptoms.

Please follow measures, as advised above.

God bless you and take care.

Hope this helped
