Have throbbing pain in left parietal lobe. Began less than 24 hours ago but will not go away. Stops for short time then starts again. Brain tumor?

Have throbbing pain in left parietal lobe. Began less than 24 hours ago but will not go away. Stops for short time then starts again. Brain tumor?

A wee clarification: 1) You cannot have a pain in your left parietal lobe. Your brain has no pain nerves. All sensations are processed in the brain but experienced elsewhere in the body. 2) The brain has no connective tissue. Lots of connective tissue around the brain, however: Meninges, arterial sheaths, other connective tissue, all of which is exquisitely sensitive to pain. That's what pains and throbs. ...Read more

Neoplasms (Definition)

"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more

Case of brain tumor (frontal lobe mainagiouma) repate MRI after 6month, it shows same but tumor size 1.5cm bigger I got some convelation ned adv?

Your doctor's advice: Did you ask your doctor as to what it all means? You should be seeing a nurologist or a neurosurgeon to guide you for the future as meningiomas can be slow growing tumors which can cause problems if they grow beyond a certain size. Then surgical removal (excision) may be required. So remain connected with a specialist for a few years till the problem has been resolved. ...Read more

What if a recent MRI on brain read venous differnetial in the opptiucal lobe, could it be a brain tumor starting have been having trouble speaking?

What if a recent MRI on brain read venous differnetial in the opptiucal lobe, could it be a brain tumor starting have been having trouble speaking?

Question unclear: I'm sorry, your question is just not clear and can't be sensibly answered. A tumor in one of the occipital lobes is not likely to cause difficulty speaking unless it was large enough to be clearly visible on an mri. I think "venous differential" is a mis-quotation. Perhaps the report read "deep venous anomaly" or "venous hemangioma"? These are benign conditions. Ask your doctor to clarify. ...Read more

"Ride the horse": I often say when choosing a seizure med, we need to "ride this horse until we find out if it'll get us where we want to go. We don't change horses unless we have to." meaning...We need to push the dose up gently until either seizures stop (yeaaaa!) or we get unacceptable side effects (oh nuts!) and have to find a different med. Talk with your neurologist. If tolerable, you might need more. ...Read more

Does a constant twitch in left eye +headache mean possible reoccurrence of brain tumor? I have a history of tumor in right occipital lobe.

Does a constant twitch in left eye +headache mean possible reoccurrence of brain tumor? I have a history of tumor in right occipital lobe.

Blepharospasm?: The condition that you have with your eyelids is called blepharospasm. Speak to your ophthalmologist about it. I don't think that it's related to your previous condition. You may need to get a follow- up MRI. Try to get copies of your past medical records now before they have been transferred to long term storage. Then scan them and keep them on a thb drive which you can download to any md. ...Read more

A palpable, non-moving protrusion from top-back of my skull (parietal lobe) of size 3 cc. No headaches or other symptoms. Could it be a tumor?

A palpable, non-moving protrusion from top-back of my skull (parietal lobe) of size 3 cc. No headaches or other symptoms. Could it be a tumor?

Could be anything: I'd be interested to know if this is new or something you had all your life. Could be as simple as a bony protrusion of your skull that has been there from the beginning but any new lump that persists or grows should be evaluated by a physician. Have it checked and best to you. ...Read more

Are sparkles in vision a symptom of brain tumor? Why? Is it due to pressure in optic nerve or chiasm? Or occipital lobe or parietal lobe pressure.

Are sparkles in vision a symptom of brain tumor? Why? Is it due to pressure in optic nerve or chiasm? Or occipital lobe or parietal lobe pressure.

No.: None of the structures you mentioned would cause sparkles in the vision. Scotomas are benign as long as they aren't persistent, they can be due to onset migraines, associated with headaches or happen for no reason.

If they come on and stay and get worse for several days then we worry about retinal/vitreous detachment. ...Read more
