Possibly: Aphasia can occur when certain parts of the dominant hemisphere are injured, such as with a stroke, either hemorrhagic or ischemic. Different types of aphasias can be localized to different parts of the brain.

It's possible: Aphasia (inability to speak or understand speech) is caused by damage (ischemia or hemorrhage- bleeding) to certain parts of the brain (usually on the left brain for right handed patients) that control speaking and understanding speech. Tumors in those areas can also affect speech.
