I Need A Straight Answer What Is Bleeding Outside Of The Brain
Hematoma: Blood can accumulate between the inside layer of the skull and the outside layer of the brain. This is a subdural or epidural hematoma depending on where it is located in the space between the brain and the skull. If large enough, these bleeds will press on the brain and will need a neurosurgeon to remove them in the operating room to prevent brain damage or death. Is that straight enough? ...Read more

This is known as cerebral edema. The pooled blood collects into a mass called a hematoma. These conditions increase pressure on nearby brain tissue, and that reduces vital blood flow and kills brain cells. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How often is a benign "meningioma" brain tumor life threatening? ( please give straight forward answers) i really don't need useless information now.
If I treat bleeding outside of the brain will it be gone, or do I need to keep worrying? I have so much on my mind.
Inside or outside: Bleeding inside the skull can exert pressure on the brain, deforming it, causing serious side-effects. Headaches are almost universal here. Brain irritation can cause seizures.
