Stroke and mood: Yes! Frontal lobe strokes can cause personality and/or mood changes.

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

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

Small size encephalomalacia in the RT frontal lobe at the level of frontal horn . due to an stroke . age : 52 . sex : female . what is the treatment ?

PT/prevention: Once you have had a stroke the treatment focuses on therapy to improve deficits and prevention of another stroke. Speech and physical therapy are extremely important in recovery, depending upon your deficits. Your doctor will work with you to make sure that your sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and weight are optimal to try and prevent another stroke. Smoking cessation is also important. ...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

What does a low density lesion in the posterior frontal lobe mean?

What does a low density lesion in the posterior frontal lobe mean?

Unclear: A computed tomography or ct scan produces images that shows the density of the tissue as gray values - bone is very dense = white, air is not dense = black, fluid and brain tissue are gray. A low density lesion now refers to a region of lower density (= darker gray) that the surrounding (brain)tissue and can mean a lot of things. Depending on the history more workup could be indicated. ...Read more
