Can a frontal lobe brain injury cause MS ?

Can a frontal lobe brain injury cause MS ?

Probably not : The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is not well understood. However, researchers have looked at a link between brain injury and ms. It is a very weak relationship. About 1 person in 5000 who has a brain injury may get ms, so i wouldn't worry too much about it. ...Read more

I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?

I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?

Hard to say: It is hard to say. From your question, it sounds as though you had injury demonstrated either by ct scan or MRI scan. One may have no problems at all, it depends on the size of the injury and the exact location in these regions. If you are asking what these areas typically do: r frontal: smell, memory, impulse control, left sided movement. L parietal: speech, language, right sided movement. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with brain damage/gliosis/low grade glioma in left frontal lobe. Doctors are still not sure what it is. Only MRI done?

I have been diagnosed with brain damage/gliosis/low grade glioma in left frontal lobe. Doctors are still not sure what it is. Only MRI done?

Not Yet Sure: I suspect an abnormality was seen that could be one of the following: 1. Gliosis. 2. Low Grade Glioma Quite different problems. I. is benign and 2. is malignant. You will need more test to decide. Follow-up may be needed. PET/CT of brain may help. ...Read more

My last enclosed tbi was sustained in 2005, result of a mva. I was told moderate frontal lobe damage sustained. Will my memory ever come back?

My last enclosed tbi was sustained in 2005, result of a mva. I was told moderate frontal lobe damage sustained.  Will my memory ever come back?

Perhaps: Following a true traumatic brain injury, spontaneous healing begins within a few days, and most recovery is substantial by 9-12 months, and a lesser improvement by 18 months. Due to time passage, independent improvement is unlikely, but you may benefit from speech therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, or even memory enhancing agents. ...Read more

Can a frontal lobe tbi cause MS in later life ?

Can a frontal lobe tbi cause MS in later life
?

NO: Loads of controversy has swirled regarding ms and trauma, but looking at all of this, it is quite clear that there is no real relationship btwn the cause of ms and any kind of trauma. There is some possible tendency to worsen ms with open head trauma, that is penetration through the skull, but not with a closed head injury. In short, your injury did not cause ms. ...Read more

I had brain removed that was 13cm. It was none cancerous, can you tell me about many years ago it have started growing? (frontal lobe left side)

I had brain removed that was 13cm. It was none cancerous, can you tell me about many years ago it have started growing? (frontal lobe left side)

Depends on tumor : The questions seems to be if you had a 13 cm tumor removed, how long has it been present? That would depend on the type of tumor. Non-cancerous tumors tend to grow at a slower rate than malignant ones. However, there is variation in the growth of these benign tumors that may range from months to years. ...Read more

What do you advise if i was just diagnosed with a 4 mm brain cyst in my right frontal lobe. Should i worry about it>?

What do you advise if i was just diagnosed with a 4 mm brain cyst in my right frontal lobe. Should i worry about it>?

Good care, not worry: This depends on various factors and a consultation with a good neurologist or neurosurgeon should allow you to understand the nature of the cyst and the best management. Repeat or periodic imaging may be recommended. Often, a small cyst remains stable over time and may not require intervention. ...Read more

How do I figure out why I am having pain in frontal lobe at 31 after MRI found a spot in my brain a yr ago but said its aging spot?

How do I figure out why I am having pain in frontal lobe at 31 after MRI found a spot in my brain a yr ago but said its aging spot?

Headache: You should discuss it with your doctor. The "spot" on the MRI is a common incidental finding as we age, and unlikely to be related to your headache. ...Read more
