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

If the frontal lobe seems not to have the usual presence of areas of prominence mixed with depressions (sulci), but instead is smooth, and effaced, this suggests external pressure smoothing out surface of brain, such as fluid from bleeding causing the change. Ask the radiologist what seems to be changing the anatomy. ...Read more

What does a left frontal lobe soft spot mean and what are the dangers?

?????: Do you mean outside the skull or inside the skull? Is this something you can feel on the side of your head? Because you said "frontal lobe," but the frontal lobe is on the other side of some tough bone. If you mean actually in the brain, you'll have to explain "soft spot," because the living brain has roughly the consistency of raw egg yolk. It's ALL soft. Please repost with clearer wording. ...Read more

Is it possible to overcome a mood disorder with a sufficiently strong frontal lobe, i.E. From reading and thinking?

Many variables here: If the mood disorder is mild to moderate & the reading matter and thinking is interesting and involving but not disturbing or provocative you may have a good idea here. However, if severe and if disturbing, it could make matters worse. Some wise, moderate folk may be able to evaluate themselves but even they might benefit from professional guidance - and, think wholistically, beyond frontal lobe. ...Read more

Very non-specific: I presume you are referring to white spot seen on a MRI brain scan.
