Hi!
The lumps since your head injury could e a contusion (soft tissue swelling) or it could be a hematoma (localized collection of blood). Both these swellings usually take 2-3 weeks to subside fully. It is good you applied ice pack immediately. Along with it you may need to take ant-inflammatory pain killers. However, since your head region is involved, it is best to consult a doctor and get this evaluated. Take care!
