I hit my head today when I was picking up

Patient : I hit my head today when I was picking up some trash underneath the kitchen table. I misjudged how far I back out from under the table and I hit my head really hard and there's a small cut on my scalp and there was some slight bleeding. I don't have a headache, or nausea. I'm not vomiting and I don't have a stiff neck or dizziness or any discomfort. I iced and laid down and took and ibuprofen. Am I at risk for anything severe and Should I go to the hospital? Or should I continue to ice and monitor my head? Thanks!
