Frontal Lobe Brain Tumor Survival Rate
I was wondering what are some symptoms that death is near whenever you have a frontal lobe brain tumor?
Coma: Failure to respond to any stimuli such as verbal commands or pain. ...Read more
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...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
How likely am I to survive a brain tumor? If you have a cancerous brain tumor, what is the survival rate?
Tumor Type?: There is a wide spectrum of brain tumors. Many can be cured and others are very malignant. The kind of tumor, age, and functional status help neurosurgeons estimate survival. However, statistics apply to a population, not an individual. ...Read more
3 weeks ago, my mom had a brain tumor removed from her left lobe. Recently she has been experiencing a pulse rate of mid 90-105. Should I worry?
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
How long does a benign brain tumor in the temporal lobe take to start having an effect on brain activity?
What if a recent MRI on brain read venous differnetial in the opptiucal lobe, could it be a brain tumor starting have been having trouble speaking?
Question unclear: I'm sorry, your question is just not clear and can't be sensibly answered. A tumor in one of the occipital lobes is not likely to cause difficulty speaking unless it was large enough to be clearly visible on an mri. I think "venous differential" is a mis-quotation. Perhaps the report read "deep venous anomaly" or "venous hemangioma"? These are benign conditions. Ask your doctor to clarify. ...Read more
Have throbbing pain in left parietal lobe. Began less than 24 hours ago but will not go away. Stops for short time then starts again. Brain tumor?
A wee clarification: 1) You cannot have a pain in your left parietal lobe. Your brain has no pain nerves. All sensations are processed in the brain but experienced elsewhere in the body. 2) The brain has no connective tissue. Lots of connective tissue around the brain, however: Meninges, arterial sheaths, other connective tissue, all of which is exquisitely sensitive to pain. That's what pains and throbs. ...Read more
I have a resected (90%) benign brain tumor in left temporal lobe. I'm on Trileptal (600 +900) & I get epilepsy every 3 wks, dose issue? Accumulation?
"Ride the horse": I often say when choosing a seizure med, we need to "ride this horse until we find out if it'll get us where we want to go. We don't change horses unless we have to." meaning...We need to push the dose up gently until either seizures stop (yeaaaa!) or we get unacceptable side effects (oh nuts!) and have to find a different med. Talk with your neurologist. If tolerable, you might need more. ...Read more
Does a constant twitch in left eye +headache mean possible reoccurrence of brain tumor? I have a history of tumor in right occipital lobe.
Blepharospasm?: The condition that you have with your eyelids is called blepharospasm. Speak to your ophthalmologist about it. I don't think that it's related to your previous condition. You may need to get a follow- up MRI. Try to get copies of your past medical records now before they have been transferred to long term storage. Then scan them and keep them on a thb drive which you can download to any md. ...Read more
Hi I have got brain tumor (meningioma)frontal lob size 18.7mm, how much %the operation will be sucessful?
Depends: This depends on your definition of success. It is probably a near 100% chance that the surgery can be done safely and that you will have no neurologic sequelae with a small convexity frontal lobe tumor. The risks of infection are about 3-5%. The risk of recurrence depends on the extent of resection and the pathology of the tumor. Not all meningiomas are the same-some are atypical, some aggressive. ...Read more
Am 45 y old female, had brain tumor on the frontal lob (maningioma, size 18.7mm), how much the % of operation will be succeful.
Good in general:
These tumors are usually treated with surgery or radiation. The outcomes depend on complete removal in the case of surgery. The exact location might make radiosurgery better than surgery.
There is a very good 10 year survival for this disease. ...Read more
I've seen my dr and ENT and both have said I have a frontal sinus problem. But google says brain tumor. Now I'm convinced. How can I forget google?
Wow: I cannot believe you would not trust your primary physician and an ENT specialist and would trust something on google. The diagnosis of frontal sinusitis is made by a cat scan of the sinuses. That is the gold standard. If you have pain above the forehead and yellow green nasal drainage, you need a cat scan. Google is a wonderful search engine but certainly cannot make a diagnosis. ...Read more
Operated for Astrocytoma Grade 3 left frontal brain tumor. Will go for radio nd chemo therapy in a few days. Which precautions/alternative can be taken?
Define your terms: Not clear what you mean by "precautions" or "alternatives." Precautions re XRT and chemo or for something else? The "alternative" to treatment is to do nothing; or to resort to traditional Indian medicine, which is the same as doing nothing, & don't let any well-meaning but ignorant laypeople or charlatans tell you different; unless all you're interested in is feeling better about dying. ...Read more
I don't have nose stuffiness but frontal sinus is tender and I've been feeling a bit dizzy and heavy headed lately - related? Brain tumor? Scared
Probably not: Your symptoms are probably related to the sinus issues that you discuss. Brain tumors in most cases tend to present with focal neurologic symtpoms (weakness or numbness) or seizures. If it does not improve, check with your doctor. There may be some tests that can be done to ensure it is not a brain tumor. ...Read more
I'm having constant frontal headaches associated with eye pain/eye strain. I've taken Tylenol, but doesn't help. I was recently diagnosed with glaucoma and I'm 29. Could there possibly be a misdiagnose and I could possibly have a brain tumor?
I doubt that you have a tumor. You can get it checked but the more likely cause is stress and the eye strain you mentioned. The glaucoma can give you eye pain. Has this been treated and is it severe?
Do you have a lot of stress. If you have eye strain have you been checked for glasses?
These are things I would check out first. ...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
