Overcoming A Bump On The Head After Hitting The Table?
Hello doctor, good afternoon. I michelle (18), I want to ask .. at night the top left head I looked at the end of the table, after the incident I wiped “until the pain subsided. dizziness or other symptoms, what’s this? Please advise, thank you, mom.
The emergence of a bump on the head after experiencing physical trauma is very likely caused by a hematoma. This hematoma can be formed due to broken blood vessels or interference with the blood vessels. Although it can seem scary, most hematomas are harmless because most injuries occur only on the scalp. But you still have to watch out for complaints of dizziness, nausea, vomiting, double vision or disturbance of consciousness because it can be associated with more serious conditions such as traumatic brain injury (concussion).
You can compress the swollen part with a cold water towel, rest and take pain medication if necessary. If the complaint persists, worsens or is accompanied by a variety of symptoms that need to be aware of, you should check with your doctor to get follow-up that is appropriate for your condition. If necessary, your doctor can recommend a CT scan to assess the condition of your brain and head bones.
