Frontal Lobe Aneurysm
My wife was diagnosed with cerebral aneurysm in the frontal lobe. Cta scan showed .6mm size. How serious is 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

I'm excited by watching tv or thinking deeply about something but still could I have caused myself frontal lobe dementia?
What do you suggest if my frontal lobe because of it!!! seriously I'm freaking out could it lead to frontal lobe dementia?
Consult your Doctor:
Frontal lobe dementia is a syndrome characterized in the initial stages with dramatic changes in personality and behaviors (e.g. becoming sexually inappropriate, vulgar,etc.) Gradually memory and other mental functions also become impaired.
A physician should rule out other medical problems and a referral to a neurologist as well as to a neuropsychologist can help to determine what the problem is ...Read more
Frontal lobe dementi: Can have several possible causes. One of the most common is of course injury to the frontal lobes in the form of trauma such as can occur from sports or from motor vehicle accidents. Another disease called picks disease develops for unknown reasons. Other causes include vascular events like little strokes to the front part of the brain. ...Read more

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
Exercise: Exercise is the only proven way to improve cognition. It is particularly good for i proving processing speed and executive functioning, which are partly frontal lobe functions. ...Read more
Pressure: Normal gray matter has routine bumps and dips. 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
Likely no much:
Sounds like a congenital arachnoid cyst was revealed on imaging. This may be totally asymptomatic but of value to periodically recheck to assure not increasing in size.
However, cysts can be secondary to other mechanisms, such a parasitic infections, but typically there would be multiple lesions. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
?????: 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
See your doctor : Unless you have a history of headaches and this is a "typical' headache you should be evaluated. There are many reasons you may have a headache and most are not serious, however your provider can help decide it additional evaluation or intervention may be necessary. If you have a fever and vomiting, dizziness or any other neurologic signs you should be seen now. ...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
Inside the skull: 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. ...Read more

Very non-specific: I presume you are referring to white spot seen on a MRI brain scan. It is always important to review the scan results with your doctor who originally ordered the scan to discuss the clinical significance or often times insignificance of the radiologic finding. In general, if someone has risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, or high cholesterol, not controlled, then MRI can show white spots. ...Read more
Personality changes: 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. ...Read more
