Frontal Lobe Dementia Hereditary
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.
I'm excited by watching tv or thinking deeply about something but still could I have caused myself frontal lobe dementia?
Nope: Fortunately that's not how we get frontal lobe dementia. So its OK to concentrate on TV and think deeply about things, Just don't text and drive.
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
Not sure: I'm not sure I understand the question. An eye infection can spread to the skull bone and then eventually cause a brain infection. This is quite rare. Most people with frontal lobe dementia because of brain disease. CADASIL, amyloid angiopathy, encephalitis and degenerative dementia with Pick bodies constitute the majority of frontal lobe dementias.
Had MRI of brain. States diffuse pathologic t2 hypersignall noted bilaterally in frontal parietal regions. I'm scared....Dementia? ? Ms???
Discuss w/ provider: One of the most important parts of imaging is providing meaningful and clear explanations of results to the patient and their family. There is no need for you to suffer additional hrm from being scared. Don't wait - call for a followup visit ASAP. Meanwhile - stop trying to guess at the meaning. It takes doctors years to understand these results. You'll Best!See 2 more doctor answers
Not uncommonly: Small percentage of frontotemporal dementia cases are indeed hereditary, and classically a tau gene on Chromosome 17, but 4 other forms are known. Would assess known genetics at 15-20% of cases at this point, but would state that it is reasonable that sporadic cases may also wind up some day as hereditary events.
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.
Deterioration in behaviour and personality in a previously normal individual.: Frontal lobe syndrome (FLS) reflects damage to the prefrontal regions of the frontal lobe. It is characterised by deterioration in behaviour and personality in a previously normal individual. Common Etiology: Head injury, Stroke, Infection, Neoplasm, Degenerative Disorders.See 1 more doctor answer
Frontal lobe: The frontal lobe is Betty functions including: motor control, expression of memory and identification of smells and odors are many of the functions of the frontal lobes of the brain.
FL: Mainly executive functions.Get a more detailed answer ›
Personality change: The person would behave like a zombie if both sides removed
No: Development of the frontal lobe is not associated with development of the visual system.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.
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.
?????: 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.
