Cyst On Frontal Lobe
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Could a small arachnoid cyst on frontal lobe and arachnoiditis from spinal block be related? Don't have arachnoiditis but do have back painafterspinal
Arachnoid cyst: Primary arachnoid cysts are the result of developmental abnormalities in the brain and spinal cord that arise during the early weeks of gestation. Secondary arachnoid cysts develop as a result of head injury, meningitis, or tumors, or as a complication of brain surgery. They are unrelated to your spinal tap. If the pain continues more than a week see the doctor who performed the tap. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
About 3x5cm arachnoid cyst, right frontal lobe, no changes for 6 years. Can it cause symtoms now like, headaches, forgeting, musical hallucinations?
See your neurologist: It's best to see your neurologist for an evaluation. Any on-line answer will be superficial. Musical hallucinations and forgetfulness should be evaluated directly by a physician. If the headaches are causing visual problems please go to an emergency room. Hope this helps.
Right lateral ventricle frontal horn compressed, Anterior midline mildly shifted to left, C2 vertebrae bone cyst, right frontal lobe glioma, treatment?
See a surgeon.: It sounds like parts of your brain may be under pressure from the tumor. A good treatment for this is surgery to remove the mass. Speak to a surgeon for more details.
7 yr old girl had CT scan after a seizure cause by fever and found a 0.6/0.7/0.7cm choroidal fissure cyst in right frontal lobe should I be concerned?
Reassurance: Most likely the cyst represents congenital variation, and had no effect upon what may have been a "febrile seizure". Nonetheless, it would be prudent to redo the imaging in about a year to make certain than cyst does not change in size. Your doctor can guide further followup arrangements.
Likely no much: Sounds like a congenital arachnoid cyst was revealed on imaging. This may be totally asymptomatic but of value to periodically recheck to assure not increasing in size. However, cysts can be secondary to other mechanisms, such a parasitic infections, but typically there would be multiple lesions. Discuss with your doctor.
What do you advise if I was just diagnosed with a 4 mm brain cyst in my right frontal lobe. Should I worry about it>?
Good care, not worry: This depends on various factors and a consultation with a good neurologist or neurosurgeon should allow you to understand the nature of the cyst and the best management. Repeat or periodic imaging may be recommended. Often, a small cyst remains stable over time and may not require intervention.
I just had a MRI on my brain. I was told I had a cyst on my left frontal lobe. They're talking about putting me on needs what's should I look out for?
Frontal Lobe Cyst: This is very difficult for me to answer with only a minimal amount of information. However, I suspect the meds are anti-seizure medications because the cyst might leave you at risk for a seizure while your doctors design a treatment plan for you. All I can recommend at this point is that to be sure you are under the care of a board certified neurologist or neurosurgeon. I wish you all the best.
I have a two cm. Cyst in my frontal left lobe of my brain. My grandmother had an anyurism and stroke. Am I at a higher risk than most because of this?
Probably not: The 2 cm cyst in your head/brain is presumably an arachnoid cyst and is not itself a risk factor for aneurysm. There is likely a hereditary component to some aneurysms, and often screening is done for people who have a first degree relative (i.e., parent, sibling, child) with an aneurysm. Having a single grandmother with an aneurysm likely does not increase your risk much if at all.
How common is it to have multiple arachnoid cysts (one in right temporal and one in left frontal lobe) both approx 5mm in size?
2 cysts: Having 2 isn't as common as 1, of course. At 5mm they are tiny compared to most. Rarely are they anything to worry about.

Hx of Trauma?: These could potentially be caused by a traumatic event earlier in life.
Deterioration in behaviour and personality in a previously normal individual.: Frontal lobe syndrome (FLS) reflects damage to the prefrontal regions of the frontal lobe. It is characterised by deterioration in behaviour and personality in a previously normal individual. Common Etiology: Head injury, Stroke, Infection, Neoplasm, Degenerative Disorders.See 1 more doctor answer
Very non-specific: I presume you are referring to white spot seen on a MRI brain scan. It is always important to review the scan results with your doctor who originally ordered the scan to discuss the clinical significance or often times insignificance of the radiologic finding. In general, if someone has risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, or high cholesterol, not controlled, then MRI can show white spots.
Personality changes: The frontal lobe is known to give us our personality traits. In the case of a tumor any disruption in this area of the brain changes in the person's behavior and personality may be seen. However this largely depends on the size and specific area and also the resulting destruction of the brain by that tumor.
Depends...: Difficult to answer without more information, but if there is damage to the frontal lobe, this usually cannot be repaired, and therapy is performed to maximize function. Please rephrase if you need additional information.
