Frontal Lobe Infarct
Type of stroke: Strokes are due to either blood clot blocking a blood vessel, called an ischemic infarct, or due to bleeding, called a hemorrhagic stroke. An infarct in the left frontal lobe is due to a blood clot that has occluded or blocked one of the main vessel supplying blood to the left frontal part or lobe of the brain with symptoms involves language disturbance and right sided weakness in face/arm//leg. ...Read more
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...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

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

It does not mean that you will necessarily have deficits from this but it does mean that you need to control your sugars and blood pressure very carefully to prevent further damage.

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

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
