Can a osteoma, cause symptoms like intense pain. And aggravate the intracranial pressure ?

Can a osteoma, cause symptoms like intense pain. And aggravate the intracranial pressure ?

Various types: Osteoid osteomas are famously painful. There are new ways of treating them with focused energy. A common osteoma involving the skull may block the outlet to a nasal sinus and cause pain in this way. Don't forget that there are other possibilities.

What is intracranial pressure ( icp) caused by brain involvement with non hodgkin's lymphoma?

What is intracranial pressure ( icp) caused by brain involvement with non hodgkin's lymphoma?

Increased ICP: Intracranial pressure (ICP) is the pressure inside the skull and thus in the brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).ICP is normally 7–15 mm Hg; at 20–25 mm Hg, the upper limit of normal, treatment to reduce ICP may be needed. Various causes of increased ICP usually blockages of CSF flow include tumor, overproduction of CSF, decreased absorption, trauma with brain swelling or mass hematoma. ...Read more

Would an increase in intracranial pressure cause a reflex slower heart rate?

Would an increase in intracranial pressure cause a reflex slower heart rate?

Generally no: HR has a reflexive response to BP and not ICP. The intracranial space is somewhat self-contained in that it consists of blood, CSF, and the brain. An expansion of one (as in increased ICP) is compensated by reduction in another. If compensation is insufficient, ICP rises and if chronic, leads to dec cerebral blood flow and may lead to herniation. You may see HR and BP changes during chronic phase. ...Read more

Can a small benign brain tumor on cerebellum cause nerves to be inflamed without causing raised intracranial pressure?

Can a small benign brain tumor on cerebellum cause nerves to be inflamed without causing raised intracranial pressure?

Has an effect: The tumor would be unlikely to create much inflammation beyond the borders of the lesion, and if small, it would not be likely to cause obstructive problems. However, might be potential issue if enlarges, so have close followup with an expert neurosurgeon. ...Read more
