Should I be concerned about a bump on the head after hitting a doorknob?

I ran into a doorknob and have a bump on my head.

First apply some ice to assist in reducing the bump. If the bump is accompanied by other symptoms such as blurred vision, dizziness, forgetfulness or change in normal mentation, then you should be concerned. Definetely no need to panic, however I suggest you seek medical attention for further evaluation.

A bump on the head can range from a serious injury to a very minor inconvenience. You should monitor your condition and note if there are any other symptoms that go along with the bump. Blurred vision, dizziness, passing out... these are all things you should contact a physician about.
