Is anger common after a stroke involving the frontal lobe of the brain? And can it be a permanet

Is anger common after a stroke involving the frontal lobe of the brain?  And can it be a permanet

Stroke and mood: Yes! Frontal lobe strokes can cause personality and/or mood changes. The FLs when healthy act as our "filter", keep us from losing control of our emotions, help us maintain attention, among other things. Damage to certain frontal areas can cause difficulty controlling anger, tendency to be 'black and white' in your thinking, or even depression. Yes these can be permanent, but also can be treated.. ...Read more

My 20 mth son shows seizure for 1ess than 10 seconds 1/2times/day.MRI told swelling in the temporal lobe and stroke in frontal lobe.Is it curable? Pls

My 20 mth son shows seizure for 1ess than 10 seconds 1/2times/day.MRI told swelling in the temporal lobe and stroke in frontal lobe.Is it curable? Pls

Need further info: It is unclear what is meant by "swelling" in the temporal lobe as that could indicate several things and a previous stroke can certainly be the cause of seizures. Likelihood of curable is low but these seizures are often treatable as there are many effective anti-seizure medications available. Please see a pediatric neurologist or make a consult appointment with me for further guidance. ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?

I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?

Hard to say: It is hard to say. From your question, it sounds as though you had injury demonstrated either by ct scan or MRI scan. One may have no problems at all, it depends on the size of the injury and the exact location in these regions. If you are asking what these areas typically do: r frontal: smell, memory, impulse control, left sided movement. L parietal: speech, language, right sided movement. ...Read more

What would a white spot on the frontal lobe mean?

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. ...Read more

Atrophy: There seems to be a word missing, but in general, you have reduced volume of the brain. Normal aging means that the brain loses volume, but there can be accelerated loss of volume with certain diseases, such as alzheimer's. Also, accelerated loss of volume in certain areas of the brain can predict dementia. It is best to speak to your primary care provider or a neurologist. ...Read more

Why do I have this strange headache? I have never had one like this. It's in the right upper frontal lobe area. It comes and goes on and off for 2 day

Why do I have this strange headache? I have never had one like this. It's in the right upper frontal lobe area. It comes and goes on and off for 2 day

Get seen ASAP.: Patients with new or 'strange' headaches worry doctors. A mild headache that responds to over the counter medication such as tylenol (acetaminophen) is generally not an emergency, but you should see your doctor in the next few weeks since it is new. Headaches that get worse or become severe could be an emergency and you should have someone bring you to an emergency room right away or call 911. ...Read more
