A member asked:

Mass in right side of brain. can that explain why i have speech and memory problems? doctor said the mass wasn't supposed to affect meor grow anymore

Possible: It is impossible to advise you whether or not the mass seen on MRI could be causing your symptoms. Without knowing the diagnosis of what exactly the mass is, it is also impossible to predict whether or not it could grow anymore. Anytime there is a mass in the brain, the possibility of it affecting normal neurological function exists.

Talk to your: Parents and your doctor about your concerns. It is scary to have a mad in your brain. If you are having speech and memory problems have it checked out to allay your fears. You may want to talk to a psychologist or social worker or guidance counselor at school, too. It's hard enough to be an adolescent without fears of medical issues. It's good to have someone to confide with.

Right brain mass: Usually, a mass or stroke on the left side of the brain can cause aphasia and left frontal lobe lesions can cause memory problems.The symptoms depend upon the area of the brain compressed by the mass and size of the mass. In 95% of people, left side of the brain is the dominant brain. In left handed people, right side of the brain may be the dominant brain causing aphasia and memory problems.
