Hard Bump On The Head After Falling From The Motor
Hello doctor. I once fell from the motorbike when around 2017 or 2018 I forgot too. Now when I woke up I had forgotten what happened but it was only around for more than 7 minutes. Then I remembered everything. I banged my head. The wound on my head did not bleed but had a small bump / swelling. I saw a doctor but said it was not good because of the swelling outside the skull. But until now the swelling / lump has not disappeared. When I pressed it the texture was hard but it didn’t hurt. But the hair over the bumps took so long to grow. Sometimes I get headaches. How are you, doctor? Please enter.
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, it could be due to a buildup of blood, formation of scar tissue, damage to the skull structure, and abnormal tissue growth. These conditions can last a long time without being treated, unlike normal swelling or bruising which normally only takes a few days and can heal on its own.
But this cannot be confirmed without direct examination. So far your steps are right by checking yourself to the doctor. As for that time it was said to be no problem, maybe because at that time your doctor suspected the lump could fade quickly. Now that several years have passed since the time of the incident and the conditions remain unchanged, further investigation is needed. Our advice, check yourself again to a neurologist or orthopedist to find out the tendency through a series of history digging, physical examination and support such as CT scan. This time also ask if the lump can be removed and what you can do to remove it. Without such a check, it is difficult to guess the diagnosis and determine its treatment.
Meanwhile, there is nothing special that can be done independently because this has also been going on for quite a long time. In addition, if the actual appearance of the lump is not too disturbing, it does not matter if it is not too rushed to the hospital because with the condition of the corona infection that is epidemic, it is better at home first if there is no condition that is really important. So, hopefully answering your question.
