Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Your concern is regarding the throbbing pain that you have after bumping your head. This can be due to a bruise or a small hematoma formed under the skin due to the trauma. Apply warm compresses and take an oral anti-inflammatory analgesic. If the symptoms are severe, then it is advisable to consult your doctor and get a CT head done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
