Hypodense Lesion Brain
White matter lesions: Lesions in the brain are not good. Hypodense lesions are seen which lead to further studies to evaluate the lesions for infection or malignancy. Discuss any findings with your neurologist (ms, sarcoid) or neurosurgeon. ...Read more
My brain CT small hypodense leison is seeing in right frontal perafalcin region suggestive of glicosis, what to do?
Benign: Although hard to say what it really is, there can be benign cysts that run in families, and commence at conception and just sit unnoticed and asymptomatic for years. However, cystic lesions can occur during immune processes and infections. Would avoid surgery unless correlation with current problems, and get followup MRI in a few months. ...Read more
It means something in one local spot.
You need to go see your doctor who ordered your tests that show this focal lesion. He/she will tell you what it means. If it is in the bone it is usually harmless but it all depends on its appearance, size and symptoms. You need to go see your doctor who ordered these tests for you. ...Read more
Complex: Sjogren's can mimic primary progressive ms, and clinical signs of weakness, imbalance, incoordination or abnormal reflexes would suggest "active" brain lesions. Mri with gadolinium positivity also a sign. But sjogren's can also cause a small fibre neuropathy, and sensory symptoms and pain might be peripheral, not central. In this area, you need a neurologist who is familiar with all of this. ...Read more
If a brain lesion does not change within 90 days (size) is there possibility of resolving or risk of increasing?
Neither: It means it has not changed size. If it is a malignant tumor, you would need to know the type to answer questions about radiation, chemo, or gamma knife surgery or any type of surgery. If it is benign depending on location and size determines treatment. If it is infection (fungal, bacterial abscess, etc), treatment and risk is also different. See your doctor. ...Read more
Hi I was told I have a brain lesion what does this mean will it go away on its own or will it stay there forever is this something to worry about?
Depends: Brain lesion is nonspecific. Could be anything, from no significance, to something serious. Need full report and/or further testing. ...Read more

Hypodense: Hypodense is a descriptive term used by radiologists to describe an abnormality in the liver seen on a ct scan. There is no other meaning, however, okay to review with your doc. Depending on any symptoms, abnormal blood tests, your other diagnoses, and your exam your doc may want to advise you on several possibilities, such as follow up image in 3 to 6 months, a biopsy, reassurance..... ...Read more

MRI doesn't explain: "No mass, no lesion detected" in a Radiology report usually means a normal brain MRI scan. I assume that the scan was ordered for a reason (i.e., symptoms). There are many symptoms (I would say MOST symptoms) that prompt an MRI scan & cannot be explained by it. MRI looks for ANATOMIC problems - tumors, bleeding, etc. The problem here is FUNCTIONAL - the nerves function incorrectly. TTYD who orderd ...Read more
Very variable: Most lesions are a few millimeters in size, but some may get quite large, and seem like small cotton balls. The size is not important, rather the extent and total number results in burden of disease, and, of course symptoms. Most important is presence of active inflammation and brain atrophy, a predictor of eventual disability. Control with potent meds, such as one of the newer oral agents. ...Read more
Contrast enhancement: Active white matter lesions tend to contrast enhance on MRI. Inactive lesions do not. You can see contrast enhancement on a contrasted CT scan but you cant see a lot of the MS plaques that are there without MRI sequences designed to identify MS plaques (FLAIR sequences and to a lesser extent T2 weighted images will reveal MS lesions that would escape detection otherwise. ...Read more
What to do if I have all the symptoms of ms. But I don't have lesion on the brain. What could it be?
Advice: Some cases of MS have lesions in spinal cord only, and not in brain, early on. MRI of neck might help. Spinal fluid testing might also be of value. But since many other disorders, such as Lyme disease, lupus, or Sjogren's might mimic MS, make sure testing has been done for other entities. ...Read more
Should I be concerned if my mum and told her that I have either a cyst or a lesion on my brain, what is that?
I have had two separate MRI on my brain and each time a white lesion pops up on my brain. Should I be concerned?
The radiologist found that there is a non-specific lesion on the left side of my brain. Is it something dangerous?
It really is: Just what it sounds like: the radiologist found an abnormality, but cannot tell specifically what it is based on that study. Additional imaging or followup may be needed. Most of these incidental "nonspecific" abnormalities turn out to be of no concern, but sometimes they don't, so you need to talk to your doc about the next steps, if any. ...Read more

Hi, "Hypodense lesion is seen involving left lobe of liver and measures 88x90x65mm" this is what my dad's report says. Pls help me!
Hypodense liver: The list of causes of hypodense liver lesions is rather extensive and can be either benign or malignant. More clinical information would be necessary. In the absence of any underlying disease - I would recommend close followup and perhaps maybe a liver specialist visit for possible biopsy. Good luck ...Read more
Hard to say: If the interpretation on the MRI by the radiologist is that it is a cyst, then it is likely benign. It also depends if there is any area of enhancement that would suggest a tumor. Also if you have serial MRI scans, you can tell if it is getting bigger or changing which is more likely a tumor. The location in the ventricle is important too. If it obstructs the foramen it could be a problem. ...Read more
