Could a 40mm arachnoid cyst in the right temporal lobe be responsible for changes in personality over a five year period (for an adult in 40's)?

Hard to be sure, but

Cyst
I think this is certainly a possibility. 40mm is a large cyst in an area of the brain that might affect personality.

What is multiple haemorrhagic contusions in right temporal lobe with subarachnoid haemorrhage? Is it dangerous?

An injured brain

Bruise
Sounds like someone sustained significant traumatic injury to the brain. Brain tissue has sustained a contusion or a severe bruise bad enough to cause bleeding that has extended to the fluid spaces around the brain. This is more severe than a concussion. Some damage to the brain has occurred. The severity of the injury will be evaluated best after the acute injury has resolved.

Dr. William Singer answered:

I suffer from temporal lobe epilepsy. I was wondering what problems this can cause having my right temporal lobe removed?

Limited

Seizure_disorder
Surgery removis a small amount of tissue felt responsible for your seizures/ The area can be localized with current tools such as MRI, PET scans and direct EEG recording from the brain beneath the skull. In most people the dominant hemisphere of speech is on the left. Removal of the usual temporal lobe area should not affect memory or speech or cause behavioral problems.

Could a patient with stage 2 CKD and severe (right) temporal lobe damage experience episodes of delirium without having a UTI present?

Sure

Open-uri20131112-21799-1b702gl
There are MANY possible reasons for delirium, and infection is only one of them. If the person has altered mental status, is disoriented, and has behavioral changes, s/he needs urgent evaluation for delirium. Effective treatment requires finding and addressing the underlying cause. Medication side effects are frequently implicated in this situation also.

Dr. William Goldie answered:

4 yr old has migrational abnormality in right temporal lobe of her brain that causes behavioral problems & seizures.Anything else it can cause?

Assume she's fine

Head-brain
We are finding many children with migrational disorders. The MRI shows us almost too much. There is no way to predict from an MRI what outcome will be. Young brains reorganize in remarkable ways. Seizures may even resolve with time. Behavior will improve with proper management. Highest risk is medication side effects and effects of repetitive seizures.

Hi. 27,Male-diagnosed with DAI Grade3(multiple petechial haemorhage in right temporal lobe)-not aware of his surroundings nw-80days over nw-recovery ?

DIFFUSE AXONAL INJUR

Male
is a serious brain injury. One might NEVER recover from it. The hemorrhage is just one example of the brain damage. There may be secondary atrophy. You should have extensive therapy and a neurologist followup. I assume you have these all scheduled. Imaging can be done with advanced MRI such as quantitative MRI imaging and also diffusion tensor imaging. I am hopeful your friend will improve
