Old scar( head injury) swelling and pain
I have Avery old head injuries from an accident about 30 years back. I got stitches on both the injuries ( forehead and back of head) suddenly now there is swelling and pain on both the scars. Why is this happening after so many years?

It's not likely that it's related to the trauma. It's scar tissue, it won't have swelling or pain unless it is infected. I don't think it is related to your trauma.
Next Steps
Take a proper consult for evaluation if symptoms are distressing.
