Hang on, Emm, we gotta wake up to get to you.  Keep in mind between the brain and the skin layer, there's a hard bony skull, so it isn't a neurological thingy you got on your forehead.  It's more a dermatitis issue, I imagine, probably a little benign cyst.  Lots of people get them on their bodies, I get plenty.  Now, as for the fall 13 years ago suddenly forming a bump 10 years later, I don't think so, altho it's possible a bruise formed there, and over time it's dried up and formed scar tissue and led to a bump.  So, I think if you want to really know what it is, and to be doubly safe, and besides you might want it removed for appearance sake, you should visit a dermatologist and let him have a look-see.
