Bumps on head dont give cancer!! I dont know if you have info healthline where you live? Call them. My son fell and hit his head quite hard twice and hes normal. You need to be on the look out for head injuries symptoms: headache, nausea, vomitting, trouble walking/standing up, trouble staying awake, changes in pupil size and reaction to light... Change in behaviors..... And i always say: when in doubt, send them out! ( go to emergency room)

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the advice, i did take her to the doctor and he said i have nothing to worry about.. but this accident should not happen again, because sometimes it can cause internal bleeding.

I would call the dr which im sure u did, but ive been told by my dr when my daughter fell years ago as long as the bump grows out like in the cartoons ( their words) and not sinking in then chances are they will be ok depending on the height of the fall.. I asked about whiplash and the said to me that because a babies bones are still firming chances are thats not a problem either..but its always best to contact ur dr for their opinion and ur piece of mind.. I hope everythings ok..

There is a lady at the same block that we live in,her son was 18 years old two month ago,.............at the age of a few month he fell and bumped his head,like any other mother she taught that everything is fine,just a bump on the forehead,few months ago they found out that he had a brain tumar,and that the cause of that was that same fall when he was still a baby,was in hospital for a month and passed away just after the operation,so guys rather be safe than sorry,those little heads r still very fragile.
