Can a hit to the head cause a brain tumor??

If someone gets hit in the head with an object like a bat/pistol/something with a hard solid surface.. is it possible to get a brain tumor??
(Sorry if it sounds silly, serious question!)

No, its not a silly quiestion your concern.  I don't think it would cause a brain tumor.  My younger hit his head when he was three on my end table very hard started bleeding  brought him to the ER and I asked if it could do any damage they  said  he would have to hit it harder than what he did meaning he would past out........Your fine......
