Frontal Lobe Lesion
32 y/o fem. Had negative MRI last yr w/2 mm frontal lobe lesion. Now having dull, VERY brief headaches, nausea, &dizziness. Should I have follow up MRI?
Neurogenic bladder, Migraines, L5 numbness, cognitive issues, & frontal lobe lesion. Doc said possible MS. Could it be something less scary? Like what?
Advice: Have your doctor get neurologist involved, and track down etiology of your numerous issues. Hard to confirm whether you do or do not have MS or any other condition based on the information provided. Do not waste time with worry: Get answers and start to treat. MS is a treatable and controllable condition in 2015!!! ...Read more
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
My nephew has a lesion on his brain that is causing seizures. They have scraped it and it did no good. Now they are going to partially remove some of his right frontal lobe to get all of the lesion. I wonder if you have ever had to do this kind of surgery
I had a MRI with and without contrast. 3 white non specific lesions with white matter were found on frontal lobe. I have memory loss, migraines.
See your doctor: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it. ...Read more
Why would a radiologist refer to frontal lobe lesions as posterior. I'm confused if this is still the frontal lobe or another part of the brain.
Can be: Can be a posterior portion of frontal lobe. There are anterior and posterior portions. Can ask your physician for more details of study. ...Read more
I get muscle twitching all over body for over year. Brain MRI showed lesions on frontal lobe not pathological. Do all lesions mean ms?
Lesions: Rarely do brain lesions cause muscle twitching. There are are many causes of brain MRI lesions. Some causes are benign/nonpathological (falsely termed) due to not portending a specific progressive/degenerative process such as gliosis/lesions seen in migraine patients. Some lesions are definitely pathological like in MS. But diagnosis is clinical - based on history of symptoms, MRI, LP, & bloodwork ...Read more
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. ...Read more

that is an interesting question, as it echoes the feeling of many of us! There are a lot of claims with no definite proof of results. Aging lead to decline in frontal lobe functions, one the reason being inactivity, both physically and mentally as we age. The only proven technique to improve is to engage in physical exercise and continue to learn new things to stimulate your brain. ...Read more
Yes: As we get older, the cells, tissues and organs in our body shrink/atrophy, degenerate/decrease in its functional capacity and it's part of the natural cycle of the human body. When the brain shrinks, it doesn't grow back. Those people who are endowed with good genes have a longer life span and have a delay in these processes. Google online for images of brain atrophy. Best wishes! ...Read more

Deterioration in behaviour and personality in a previously normal individual.:

Frontal lobe fxn: Not sure what you're asking, but the frontal lobe of the brain (cerebrum) largely controls behavior, executive functions such as planning, language and motor function. ...Read more
Very non-specific: I presume you are referring to white spot seen on a MRI brain scan. It is always important to review the scan results with your doctor who originally ordered the scan to discuss the clinical significance or often times insignificance of the radiologic finding. In general, if someone has risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, or high cholesterol, not controlled, then MRI can show white spots. ...Read more
Personality changes: The frontal lobe is known to give us our personality traits. In the case of a tumor any disruption in this area of the brain changes in the person's behavior and personality may be seen. However this largely depends on the size and specific area and also the resulting destruction of the brain by that tumor. ...Read more

Speech and weakness: Damage to the left frontal lobe can occur from various causes, but often blood clot occluding blood flow or a hemorrhagic stroke with often several symptoms that are unfortunately seen. These include slurred speech, difficulty with expression of speech, however, fortunately still often able to understand speech, and drooping of the right face as well as weakness of the right arm and leg. ...Read more
I have a question what could happen years later after getting a corner of your left frontal lobe remove?
Left frontal lobe: Is in most people involved in motor function, memory, language, impulse, judgement, sexual and social functions. The extent of changes in any of this functions will vary depending on the ability of your neurons to reconnect and regenerate and intercommunications. Your neurosurgeon will be the best to discuss the effect based on how much is removed and the loci ...Read more
I am 67 and have generalized cerebral and cerabellar loss with slight frontal lobe predominance. Explain.
Atrophy: There seems to be a word missing, but in general, you have reduced volume of the brain. Normal aging means that the brain loses volume, but there can be accelerated loss of volume with certain diseases, such as alzheimer's. Also, accelerated loss of volume in certain areas of the brain can predict dementia. It is best to speak to your primary care provider or a neurologist. ...Read more
Why do I have this strange headache? I have never had one like this. It's in the right upper frontal lobe area. It comes and goes on and off for 2 day
Get seen ASAP.: Patients with new or 'strange' headaches worry doctors. A mild headache that responds to over the counter medication such as tylenol (acetaminophen) is generally not an emergency, but you should see your doctor in the next few weeks since it is new. Headaches that get worse or become severe could be an emergency and you should have someone bring you to an emergency room right away or call 911. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
