This answer was rated:

I fell 10 days ago while jogging and cracked my head on the sidewalk. Didn't lose consciousness, but it hurt enough to make me gasp and cry for a minute. Hit hard on my right forehead/brow bone; iced it 20 on 20 off. It got swollen and bruised badly, very tender. Did not go to ER or Dr. Now bruise is almost gone, but I have a small tender loose bump at my eyebrow, some mild headache, and I wonder if I should have gone to the ER? Or should still go?
Hello from JA
Thank you for requesting me.
You absolutely must see a doctor.
This is still a concussion by definition.
You could have damage or post concussion syndrome.
even a chronic bleed could develop.
So an exam preferably by an internist or neurologist would be desired.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
