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

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

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

My daughter had her frontal left lobe of her brain removed due to a tumor three years ago. Is the left frontal lobe of your brain necessary?

My daughter had her frontal left lobe of her brain removed due to a tumor three years ago. Is the left  frontal lobe of your brain necessary?

Yes and no?: While we have a fairly thorough understanding of how the brain works by no means do we or are we meant to understand all of its new wants details. The frontal lobes deal with emotions and short-term memory. Therefore people can function and survive without portions of those areas, however there would definitely be some measurable subjective differences compared to someone who did not have that portion of the brain removed. It sounds as if your daughter is doing okay three years later. ...Read more

I just had a MRI on my brain. I was told I had a cyst on my left frontal lobe. They're talking about putting me on needs what's should I look out for?

I just had a MRI on my brain. I was told I had a cyst on my left frontal lobe. They're talking about putting me on needs what's should I look out for?

Frontal Lobe Cyst: This is very difficult for me to answer with only a minimal amount of information. However, I suspect the meds are anti-seizure medications because the cyst might leave you at risk for a seizure while your doctors design a treatment plan for you. All I can recommend at this point is that to be sure you are under the care of a board certified neurologist or neurosurgeon. I wish you all the best. ...Read more

I recently had a CT scan of the brain and i want to know what do these findings actually mean? The findings are as follows: focus of decreased density in the sub-cortical white matter of the left frontal lobe, per-ventricular ischemic change. No mass or m

Your : Your ct findings are suggestive of cerebrovascular disease, which is usually caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Smokers and people with uncontrolled hypertension or high cholesterol are commonly affected by cerebrovascular disease. The areas around your brain's ventricles (these are simply hollow chambers within your brain) are particularly susceptible to the reduced blood flow caused by this condition -- hence the "peri-ventricular ischemic change." the area of decreased density in your left frontal lobe could be due to a "lacunar infarct" (i.e., a small stroke), which is another common complication of cerebrovascular disease. Your doctor can help you sort through the potential causes of (and treatment for) cerebrovascular disease. If you're a smoker, quitting would be of great benefit to your brain. I hope things go well for you! ...Read more
