My daughter had her frontal left lobe of her brain removed due to a tumor three years ago. Is the left  frontal lobe of your brain necessary?

Yes and no?: While we have a fairly thorough understanding of how the brain works by no means do we or are we meant to understand all of its new wants details. The frontal lobes deal with emotions and short-term memory. Therefore people can function and survive without portions of those areas, however there would definitely be some measurable subjective differences compared to someone who did not have that portion of the brain removed. It sounds as if your daughter is doing okay three years later. ...Read more

Brain Tumor (Definition)

Brain cancer refers to cancer located in the brain. It can occur from a metastasis from a tumor in another part of the body or can originate in the brain. Symptoms of brain cancer include headaches, weakness, dizziness, seizures, and blurry vision. It can sometimes be asymptomatic as, for example, in patients with small cell lung cancer. It is always best to use MRI with contrast to make an evaluation, since using a CT can cause you to miss ...Read more

Your doctor's advice: Did you ask your doctor as to what it all means? You should be seeing a nurologist or a neurosurgeon to guide you for the future as meningiomas can be slow growing tumors which can cause problems if they grow beyond a certain size. Then surgical removal(excision) may be required. So remain connected with a specialist for a few years till the problem has been resolved. ...Read more

MRI at 1-2 years : A 1 cm meningioma of the frontal lobe region is usually followed by MRI every 1-2 years. If there are no seizures, only imaging follow-up is recommended. Dizzy spells were probably unrelated to the meningioma. ...Read more

I just had a MRI on my brain. I was told I had a cyst on my left frontal lobe. They're talking about putting me on needs what's should I look out for?

Frontal Lobe Cyst: This is very difficult for me to answer with only a minimal amount of information. However, I suspect the meds are anti-seizure medications because the cyst might leave you at risk for a seizure while your doctors design a treatment plan for you. All I can recommend at this point is that to be sure you are under the care of a board certified neurologist or neurosurgeon. I wish you all the best. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with brain damage/gliosis/low grade glioma in left frontal lobe. Doctors are still not sure what it is. Only MRI done?

Not Yet Sure: I suspect an abnormality was seen that could be one of the following: 1. Gliosis. 2. Low Grade Glioma Quite different problems. I. is benign and 2. is malignant. You will need more test to decide. Follow-up may be needed. PET/CT of brain may help. ...Read more

Your : Your ct findings are suggestive of cerebrovascular disease, which is usually caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Smokers and people with uncontrolled hypertension or high cholesterol are commonly affected by cerebrovascular disease. The areas around your brain's ventricles (these are simply hollow chambers within your brain) are particularly susceptible to the reduced blood flow caused by this condition -- hence the "peri-ventricular ischemic change." the area of decreased density in your left frontal lobe could be due to a "lacunar infarct" (i.e., a small stroke), which is another common complication of cerebrovascular disease. Your doctor can help you sort through the potential causes of (and treatment for) cerebrovascular disease. If you're a smoker, quitting would be of great benefit to your brain. I hope things go well for you! ...Read more

Neoplasms (Definition)

Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
