Please do not ask for all sorts of advice as you will really freak out when you get all sorts of misleading information.There is no evidence that falling on your head can lead to a brain tumour.If you are at all concerned about your daughter ask your paediatrician to check her. She is at the stage when she will soon start walking.

A skull is a very hard thing. My baby also had a bad knock to the head a few weeks back and it was quite swollen. Ped. said that worst that can happen is a skull fracture (sort of protection to the brain) and it often heals on it's own.
But if you are concerned, go to ped.
