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

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

1 yr before i got an accident and frontal bone surgery was done. Now on my scalp uncontrollable dandruff is forming post surgery. Advice to stop this?

Dandruff: Neutrogena shampoo. Showers with tepid or cool water. Minimize frequency of washing (water dries up skin). Try antihistamine (benadryl, zyrtec (cetirizine)...)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.

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

Posterior auricular: this could be a posterior auricular nerve problem which could be from a local nerve compression or from a C2 root lesion as the area you described corresponds to a C2 dermatome, MRI C spine would help differentiate between the two. ...Read more

35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?

35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?

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

No recent cold or stuffy. Frontal sinus pain/pressure. Very tender 2 touch btween eyebrows & eyebrow bones. No signs of sinus infec just tender.

The tenderness: May be the sign, though unusual to present this way? Flonase at night may help relieve pressure on the frontal sinuses, try some pseudophed or Claritin d, if that helps it may be what that is, go in for fever and try aleve (naproxen) 2 2x per day. May not be a bacterial infection decongestant easy enough to try, ask pharmacist for Claritin d, hold behind counter now. Gd luc. ...Read more

I have bone spurs at the C5/6 that's pressing on my esophagus. Can they cause frontal headaches r below the eyebrow in cnr? My sinus meds won't work.

I have bone spurs at the C5/6 that's pressing on my esophagus. Can they cause frontal headaches r below the eyebrow in cnr? My sinus meds won't work.

Not usually: Mech problems can cause headaches, but they pretty exclusively run from the neck up the back if the head. I wonder if you might have developed a progression of your sinus problems to the extent that your medications are no longer working. Sometimes sinuses have to be drained. I would not hesitate to be seen. ...Read more

Frontal Sinus area bones appear more enlarged on my forehead recently. I'm a female 62 who had a mild concussion and whiplash 4 months ago. Worried.

These are not rel-: -aged. It could be that you have lost some weight, as that can make your face more gaunt and the bones seem more prominent than before. If that's all you are left with after a concussion, consider yourself lucky. ...Read more
