Can the frontal bone in face actually be pushed back with an adult cranioplasty?

Cranioplasty: Any bone of the face can be removed and replaced in a different position. If a cranioplasty is being done then it sounds like a bone prominence (e.g. Fibrous dysplasia) is being removed and the defect repaired with a cranioplasty procedure. This last can be done with bone from somewhere else on the head or with foreign materials of which there is a long list. ...Read more

Dandruff: Neutrogena shampoo. Showers with tepid or cool water. Minimize frequency of washing (water dries up skin). Try antihistamine (benadryl, zyrtec...)sometimes we use steroid lotions. Just make sure is dandruff and nothing else (see doctor if condition does not improve). ...Read more

What do my mri results mean; chronic microvas ischemic changes noted, frontal bone lesion & slightly abnormally shaped & low lying cerebellar tonsil.

Hard to say: urs best to discuss this with a neurology doctor, who can get full history. Picture by itself is just a picture-need medical hx and exam. So far it may look that there are changes- probably due to long history of smoking or other vascular disease .... As far as the shape of the brain parts and frontal lesion- it's impossible to tell without more info ...Read more

Further testing: If you have been having an MRI every 6 months, it's possible this hyperintensity showed up before, but was not reported. Sometimes small versions of this are missed during other tests. Having another MRI in the future should be an adequate method to study this. If you have another MRI 6 months from now, that should be helpful enough. ...Read more

What doctor treats benign frontal osteoma?

Orthopedic: As this is a benign condition of the bone i would think an orthopedic surgeon may be the person; on the other hand it is located on the frontal bone and maybe a plastic surgeon should be consulted. Speak with your physician about the goals you have in mind and make a mutual decision about which would be best. ...Read more

Could you advise the best solution for active osteod osteoma inside the bones of the ankle?

Several solutions: These tumors have been reported to shrink on their own with no surgical intervention over several years. The standard treatment for osteoid osteoma is surgically cutting out of the entire tumor, particularly the central core, for a good outcome. Ct-guided radiofrequency removal of the nidus has been successfully used with few recurrences and little complication. ...Read more

Benign but painful: Ostoid osteoma is a benign(non cancerous) tumor of the bone. It has a specific look on mri, ct scans and bone scans. It is a small area of increased vascularity that classically hurts more at night and is relieved by taking Aspirin like compounds. Its natural is history is that it will eventually go away on its own with 5-7 years .It can be removed surgically or with focused radiofrequency ablati. ...Read more

CT location, surgery: Depending on the location of the tumor, a ct guided or a MRI of the exact location of the lesion needs to be performed. With a guided approach, minimal damage to surrounding tissue (nerves) can irradicate the tumor. ...Read more
