Head bump, please help!

Please help, I hit my head on a cabinet corner this morning (stood up and hit head above left temple on open cabinet) and now there is a sore bump there. I don't think I had a concussion bc I didn't black out, there is no outer bleeding, but does the bump mean there could be a clot? Should I be concerned? Help!

If you have no other symptoms I don't think you should be concerned, but put ice on the bump, that will help.

No it does not mean their is a clot. put ice on the area which will help reduce the swelling. If you have a headache, feel dizzy or need to vomit you need to go to the DR. right away.
