What is longevity expectancy after severe frontal lobe hemorrhagic stroke?

Not positive

Hemorrhage
Unfortunately, 60% of all intracranial hemorrhage patients die within one year after the bleed, but 40% do survive. In this latter group, the main thrust to maintain stability involves very meticulous preventative care.

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

Head-brain
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

Dr. Farbod Farmand answered:

What are common symptoms of a frontal lobe tumor?

Personality changes

Lobe
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.

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

Stroke
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.

What is frontal lobe epilepsy?

Frontal lobe seizure

Seizure_disorder
Frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) refers to epilepsy where the seizure focus is located in the frontal lobes. Because the frontal lobes are involved in so many functions the symptoms of FLE can be very varied and can include motor, emotional and cognitive symptoms. FLE can also be difficult to diagnose. See http://www.epilepsy.com/epilepsy/epilepsy_frontallobe for more information.

Frontal lobe epilepsy deja vu?

Distorted memory

Deja_vu
Deja vu is a false feeling of familiarity. It occurs when one feels that a situation or location is familiar even though it hasn't been previously experienced. It can be thought of as a brief malfunction of the memory system where the timing of the event gets assigned as if it occurred in the past making it seem like an old memory. It occurs more commonly in temporal lobe epilepsy.

Where is the frontal lobe located?

Inside the skull

Open-uri20130104-18870-mroqfv
The frontal lobe is located inside the skull( cranium) in the front part ( anterior cranial fossa) somewhat above the eyes. You actually have two of them-- a right frontal lobe and a left frontal lobe.
