Frontal Lobe Bleed In Brain
Age 23. Coma patient. Diffused axonal injury. Intraventricular hemmorhage. Bleeding in frontal lobe. Chances of survival? Any possible impairment?
Not good: Sorry about this one, but there will be a suboptimal outcome at best. Survival may be issue, talk to your doctors, and perhaps an eeg can guide decisions, but hard to predict outcome of comas. Sounds like a profound traumatic event, and since young and severe, have a family conference with the treatment team, and get all your questions answered. ...Read more

I had brain removed that was 13cm. It was none cancerous, can you tell me about many years ago it have started growing? (frontal lobe left side)
Depends on tumor: The questions seems to be if you had a 13 cm tumor removed, how long has it been present? That would depend on the type of tumor. Non-cancerous tumors tend to grow at a slower rate than malignant ones. However, there is variation in the growth of these benign tumors that may range from months to years. ...Read more

Yes these can be permanent, but also can be treated.. ...Read more

My daughter had her frontal left lobe of her brain removed due to a tumor three years ago. Is the left frontal lobe of your brain necessary?
Yes and no?: While we have a fairly thorough understanding of how the brain works by no means do we or are we meant to understand all of its new wants details. The frontal lobes deal with emotions and short-term memory. Therefore people can function and survive without portions of those areas, however there would definitely be some measurable subjective differences compared to someone who did not have that portion of the brain removed. It sounds as if your daughter is doing okay three years later. ...Read more
Does it matter what side of the brain the headache comes from? Bc I have had 2 frontal lobe brain resect in 1993 -95 6 monthes ago a sev concussion
Not a critical issue: Not unique for some post-traumatic headaches to occur exactly at site of injury, but in other cases, may be bilateral like tension events, or unilateral like migraine events, which could fluctuate side to side. Headaches do not always react logically, and location can be very false localizing. ...Read more

Case of brain tumor (frontal lobe mainagiouma) repate MRI after 6month, it shows same but tumor size 1.5cm bigger I got some convelation ned adv?
Your doctor's advice: Did you ask your doctor as to what it all means? You should be seeing a nurologist or a neurosurgeon to guide you for the future as meningiomas can be slow growing tumors which can cause problems if they grow beyond a certain size. Then surgical removal (excision) may be required. So remain connected with a specialist for a few years till the problem has been resolved. ...Read more
I have a 8 mm calcification on the right frontal lobe of my brain. Can that cause issues with word finding, brainfog and give intermittent headaches?
Possible, not likely: Calcifications in and around the brain can come from many different causes -- knowing more about the history of your calcification would be helpful at answering your question. Most would not cause headaches, and would be unlikely to cause "brain fog" or word finding troubles unless it is causing seizures. Medications are probably the most common cause of the symptoms you mention. ...Read more
Frontal lobe meningioma removed 3mths ago still have a parasagittal down center of brain. No symptoms but 3.8. Need removed? Iswrapped carotid, Scared
VERY complex questin: You're literally asking whether or not brain surgery is recommended for your condition. That answer will take up more than 400 characters. Use HealthTap Prime or ask a neurosurgeon who knows your condition well - perhaps the surgeon who performed the removal 3 months ago. How did that surgery go? What risks did it pose? Without knowing your condition better, it's hard to make a recommendation ...Read more
What medication can be used to build the brain tissue, report says there is evidence of poorly defined area of altered signal intensity seen involving left frontal lobe displayed hyperintense signal on T2W and flair images suggestive of infarct.?
None: Presumably you didn't just wander into an MRI facility & make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the MRI for a reason. An MRI is meaningless by itself. You're the patient, not the MRI. You don't even really know what's going on yet. Your doctor is ethically obligated to interpret the MRI results as they apply to you. Brain tissue can't be "built." Once gone, it's gone forever. ...Read more
