My dad fall and have a blood in the brain, he doesn't need  a surgery, he have amnesia and hallucination. How can I help him?

Watch him.: Make sure the neurologist follows the patient with imaging studies ( ct or mri). He/she may order medicines for hallucinations . Amnesia may improve by itself or stayed the same. There are drugs for hallucinations. Just be supportive taking pt to appointments and reminding him what he has to do. Read about falling precautions . He might need institutionalization if difficult to handle. ...Read more

I lose my balance, fall, feel light-headed and sometimes faint. Had a heart MRI, brain MRI, blood tests and all came back normal.What's up?

Balance: Falling is a concern because it can lead to injury. If lots of tests do not show the reason, it may be a medication you use. Side effects of some medications include imbalance, and that would not show up on any tests. There are other possible causes that will not show up on MRI also. You should consider a movement disorder neurologist, as they also have experience with many balance disorders. ...Read more

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on  its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?

MR is very sensitive: Mri is very sensitive in detecting blood products. It is even capable of staging the age of the bleed as the imaging characteristics of blood on MRI are variable and change with the age of the blood. So as long as your hematoma is evolving in expected fashion (based on mri) and have not changed in size it is ok. Hemosiderin (blood break down product) can be detected on MRI years after the bleed. ...Read more

Will I be able to donate blood after a brain tumour?

Will I be able to donate blood after a brain tumour?

It depends: There are many different types of Brain tumors, so we need to know your exact diagnosis? Most patients who have had Cancer(other than skin cancer) are rejected by the blood bank because their blood may have circulating Tumors cells. But that is unlikely in the case of brain tumors(at least in most of them). ...Read more
