Is it a concussion or just a bump on the head?


Sooner or later every child strikes his or her head. But there is difference between a simple bump to the head and a head injury that requires medical attention, say two Temple pediatric experts.

“A concussion is a significant injury to the head that results in temporary loss of consciousness, confusion and amnesia,” says Dr. Harsh Grewal, section chief of Pediatric and Trauma Surgery at Temple University Children's Medical Center.

Dr. Neil Miele, an emergency medicine pediatrician at Temple Children's says that a bump to the head usually results in a minor scalp injury -- a cut, scrape, bruise, or swelling. “Big lumps appear severe but they can occur with minor injuries because the blood supply to the scalp is so plentiful.”
