Brain bleed: Brain hemorrhage is bleeding inside the head. This could be blood surrounding the brain (subdural or epidural hematoma) or blood inside the brain tissue. A few of the possible causes include trauma, thin blood (patients on anticoagulation drugs, eg coumadin), hypertension, brain tumors (cancer, vascular malformation).

Any age: Stroke from interrupted blood flow (ischemic stroke) or bleeding (hemorrhagic stroke) can happen at any age. However, it is more frequent in older age groups, and in people with certain predisposing conditions, including clot-forming conditions, some heart conditions and blood vessel conditions.
