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

My daughter had her frontal left lobe of her brain removed due to a tumor three years ago. Is the left frontal lobe of your brain necessary?
Yes and no?: While we have a fairly thorough understanding of how the brain works by no means do we or are we meant to understand all of its new wants details. The frontal lobes deal with emotions and short-term memory. Therefore people can function and survive without portions of those areas, however there would definitely be some measurable subjective differences compared to someone who did not have that portion of the brain removed.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

"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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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.

Then scan them and keep them on a thb drive which you can download to any md. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
