Customer Question
I hit my head...

I hit my head on my car door about two hours ago it didn't hurt and I did not have a bump there- now I have a bump there but not in any pain. I put ice on it, should i be worried

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

I do not have a headache - it just happened two hours ago. The only reason I put ice on it was because of the bump

A bump is a very common occurrence here as this is a very vascular area which causes blood collection (hematoma). You have done right by applying ice. Please do it for 3-4 times a day (5 minutes each time).

This may take 5-7 days to go away.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

That is what I thought just wanted to make sure since it took like an hour for it to pop up.
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 10 months ago

If the oozing is more, bump comes immediately. If the oozing is slow, hematoma forms in some time.

It is privilege assisting you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
