My mom 52 yrs of age with no underlying condition has been diagnosed with meningioma in left parietal lobe along the falx of the size 4.6 X 4.5 X 4 cm?

My mom 52 yrs of age with no underlying condition has been diagnosed with meningioma in left parietal lobe along the falx of the size 4.6 X 4.5 X 4 cm?

May need tx: Does your mom have symptom? Symptomatic meningioma >4cm generally requires tx. Asymptomatic meningioma > 4cm usually will be treated, or observed occationally according to the NCCN. Tx will involve surgery if accessible, followed by radiation depending on the pathology or may be radiation alone. You should see an oncologist to have a thorough review of the case and then decide. ...Read more

Calcification of a lesion in the left parietal lobe along the falx no symptoms except occasional focal fit?

Calcification of a lesion in the left parietal lobe along the falx no symptoms except occasional focal fit?

Probably from pork: Cysticercosis is an infection by the pork tapeworm (Taenia solium). Infected people may have no symptoms for years, then if a cyst of the tapeworm forms in the brain, it is one of the most common causes of seizures. In some parts of the world up to 1/4 of the people have cysticercosis. Avoid eating pork to prevent more cysts from forming in your body. The best diet for humans is eating plants. ...Read more

Chronic periventricular white matter focus left parietal lobe. The etiology is non specific in nature? There were finding in MRI.meaning!?

Chronic periventricular white matter focus left parietal lobe. The etiology is non specific in nature? There were finding in MRI.meaning!?

Good question: At this time MRI is very sensitive to any type of damage or changes in tissue but we still have to go by pattern recognition to diagnose anything. This is the reason the read says "non specific". One lesion doesn't mean anything unless it fits a pattern. We see this all the time and it is considered a normal variant meaning it is not normal but found in enough people to be considered normal. ...Read more

I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?

I had a traumatic brain injury with damage to the right inferior frontal lobe and left parietal lobe. What are possible effects?

Hard to say: It is hard to say. From your question, it sounds as though you had injury demonstrated either by ct scan or MRI scan. One may have no problems at all, it depends on the size of the injury and the exact location in these regions. If you are asking what these areas typically do: r frontal: smell, memory, impulse control, left sided movement. L parietal: speech, language, right sided movement. ...Read more

Have throbbing pain in left parietal lobe. Began less than 24 hours ago but will not go away. Stops for short time then starts again. Brain tumor?

Have throbbing pain in left parietal lobe. Began less than 24 hours ago but will not go away. Stops for short time then starts again. Brain tumor?

A wee clarification: 1) You cannot have a pain in your left parietal lobe. Your brain has no pain nerves. All sensations are processed in the brain but experienced elsewhere in the body. 2) The brain has no connective tissue. Lots of connective tissue around the brain, however: Meninges, arterial sheaths, other connective tissue, all of which is exquisitely sensitive to pain. That's what pains and throbs. ...Read more

What do you mean by: 1. Scalp hematoma, left parietal region 2, cerebral contusion left parietal lobe 3. Cerebral contusion left base cerebral hemisph?

What do you mean by: 1. Scalp hematoma, left parietal region 2, cerebral contusion left parietal lobe 3. Cerebral contusion left base cerebral hemisph?

Scalp hematoma: Scalp hematoma is a bleeding underneath the scalp in the upper left region of the skull. The contusion is in the same region and is a brusing and bleeding in the brain. #3. Is another bruising or bleeding on the left side of the brain but lower down towards the base of the skull. These injuries sound like there are a result of head trauma. ...Read more

What does "small hyperintense focus in white matter of left parietal lobe" mean? I had insomnia and slight head and finger twitches and thus got it done. I am only 24 years old.

What does "small hyperintense focus in white matter of left parietal lobe" mean?  I had insomnia and slight head and finger twitches and thus got it done. I am only 24 years old.

Nonspecific: Could be due to prior injury, could represent either vascular or inflammatory lesion, could even be due to infection. The clinical correlation really needs direct discussion with the doctor who ordered the study. ...Read more

I am 22 year old female. I am suffering from shaky right hand and leg. Mri report says calcified granuloma in the left parietal lobe likely Neurocysti?

I am 22 year old female. I am suffering from shaky right hand and leg. Mri report says calcified granuloma in the left parietal lobe likely Neurocysti?

Cysticercosis: Infection by the pork tapeworm, Tanea solium, can cause cysts within the brain. The reading on your MRI does suggest this process, and the symptoms on the right side of your body fits with the left parietal lesion. You may be having focal seizures, and an anti-epileptic drug may well help. A neurologist needs to get involved. ...Read more

Part of brain: It is part of brain positioned above the occipital lobe and behind the frontal lobe. Its function is to integrate sensory information from the visual cortex. It includes infomation processing related to the sense of touch. So it is involved in visuospatial processing. It is also involved with language processing. ...Read more
