Frontal Lobe Bleed In Brain
Cyst in the brain: If it is just a cyst then there is no real danger other than a slight increase in bleeding. The key question is that this cyst is not associated with another lesion. Arachnoid cysts are now commonly found as part of mr studies. ...Read more
Probably not : The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is not well understood. However, researchers have looked at a link between brain injury and ms. It is a very weak relationship. About 1 person in 5000 who has a brain injury may get ms, so i wouldn't worry too much about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Radiologist report says bilateral gliosis posterior frontal lobe. Where is the posterior frontal lobe located and can it cause my nocturnal seizures. ?
The frontal lobes: Occupy about the front half of the top part of the brain, called the cerebrum. The posterior area would be towards the back - just in front and above the ear - see attached image - the back part of the pink area. Gliosis is like scar tissue in the brain, and could cause seizures. Please discuss this with your neurologist and correlate with eeg and other test results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My mother, 84, MRI scan> subacute infarcts, bilateral frontal lobes, small vessel ischematic changes inthe basal ganglia, periventricular white matter?
Small vessel disease: Mri in a 84 years old lady showing infarcts and small vessel disease means she is having ministrokes. That is very common in that age group. If she has heart disease or carotid artery disease or risk factors like high BP or diabetes or high lipids they should be controlled and she should follow up with her dr who can give her further recommendations. ...Read more
Spect scan showed moderate-severe decreased areas in both temporal/parietal lobes &right frontal lobe. Does this explain my memory and thinking issue?
Would need to know: Type of cyst, exact location and size and if you have any symptoms. Contact physician requesting the study to explain. ...Read more
Minor Musocal thickening within the left frontal sinus, the ethmoid air cells and right maxillary atrium found in MRI scan, have bad frontal headaches?
Mucosal thickening: What you are describing is completely normal with incidental finding of mucosal thickening on MRI. It is very common to see mild sinus mucosal thickening on MRI. It is not diagnostic of sinus infection or sinus obstruction. The cause of your headache is unlikely to be related to your sinuses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Subarachnoid cysts are common and are usually asymptomatic. The middle cranial fossa where the temporal lobe sits is a common location for these cysts. Arnold-Chiari malformations involve the posterior cranial fossa, not the middle fossa unless there is secondary hydrocephalus. http://radiopaedia.org/articles/arachnoid-cyst ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: Size and location of the tumor have a lot to do with delineating the symptoms. The frontal lobe has a few different functions. Among them; speech, personality deficits and/or motor problems on the right side of the body can result. ...Read more
My MRI found multiple frontal punctate subcortical white matter foci appreciated notable in the frontal lobes. What does this mean?
Sign of Age: You often see these as we get older, especially if you have high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol. The small blood vessels in the brain, like everywhere in the body, can get clogged with cholesterol, especially if you have high blood pressure and diabetes which makes the vessels less elastic. ...Read more
Brain spect grossly irregular activity in large area cerebral cortex with relative sparing of the occipital region possibly the R frontal area
Is it your scan?: Presumably you didn't just wander into a nuclear medicine facility & make an impulse purchase. Your doctor ordered the scan for a reason. What is the reason? Please also repost & state what your doctor's "ideas" about the scan are; or if you have not asked your doctor, please relate why not. ...Read more
Electric storm: The brain is controlled by electrical impulses. These are usually well regulated and are very nicely controlled by brain circuits. When these impulses get out of control, then the brain reacts by producing dramatic behavioral events that are seen as seizures. If the region of irritation is from the temporal lobe, then the behavior may be very complex and difficult to manage. ...Read more
CYSTS IN MAXILLARY SINUSES, RIGHT LARGER THAN LEFT OPACIFICATION OF MASTOID AIRCELLS PUNCTURE HIGH SIGNAL AREA SUBCORTICAL WHITE MATTER NASAL SEPTU?
Reason for MRI?: If this was supposed to be an MRI of the brain then, the read of the sinuses is a common "red herring" that radiologists always tend to comment on but rarely do the comments make it into the annals of CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE nor do they ever have to do with the initial reason for which the scan was obtained. Bottom line is probably of no importance. But check with your doctor or neurologist. ...Read more
