Occipital Lobe Tumor Symptoms
Can a single visual hallucination caused by a tumor on the occipital lobe last for 18 years straight with no interruptions?
Can gravity cease?: The answer to MY question is YES! No way-Yes, way! There's a calculable probability that a ball dropped to the floor ENOUGH TIMES will go UP on at least 1 trial. Unlikely you will live long enough to see it but it's not an IMPOSSIBILITY. Translate to hallucination- 24/7- same image (s), sequence, everything, for that long? Highly unlikely but then, there's gravity Has the patient had an EEG?
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". 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
Does a constant twitch in left eye +headache mean possible reoccurrence of brain tumor? I have a history of tumor in right occipital lobe.
Blepharospasm?: The condition that you have with your eyelids is called blepharospasm. Speak to your ophthalmologist about it. I don't think that it's related to your previous condition. You may need to get a follow- up MRI. Try to get copies of your past medical records now before they have been transferred to long term storage. Then scan them and keep them on a thb drive which you can download to any md.See 2 more doctor answers
Are sparkles in vision a symptom of brain tumor? Why? Is it due to pressure in optic nerve or chiasm? Or occipital lobe or parietal lobe pressure.
No.: None of the structures you mentioned would cause sparkles in the vision. Scotomas are benign as long as they aren't persistent, they can be due to onset migraines, associated with headaches or happen for no reason. If they come on and stay and get worse for several days then we worry about retinal/vitreous detachment.
I've had a constant, focal, sharp pain on my left occipital lobe for 2 days. No other associated symptoms. Pain started 2/10, now 4/10 on pain scale.
The occipital lobe: Is inside the brain. Perhaps you meant the occipital area (nape of neck), as that can happen and be bothersome. You rate it as 2-4/10, which isn't bad, and you might have a muscular contraction, or vascular issues that's causing this to occur. So, it's best to see your doctor, and have it evaluated, if it hasn't changed or improved by now.
occipital neuritis: There is a nerve actually a pair of nerves which supply posterior aspect of the scalp or the occipital region. It is called the greater occipital nerve. When he gets irritated it causes pain in the region of its distribution. This irritation maybe caused by trauma, muscle spasm, cervical disc disease, or even something as as simple as having to wear a hard hat day in and day out.
See details: It is most likely to be an issue with the cervical spine. Have it evaluated and x rays done. If indicated.
Depends: A lot depends on the size of the cyst and if there is any associated enhancement on the MRI scan. There are many people who have benign cysts which are fluid filled regions in the brain. These may have a thin membrane around them. If they do not change over time, these do not need surgery. If there is enhancement, they have to be watched closely or biopsied to make certain it is not a tumor.
Ask doctor: Predicting life expectancy is very complicated and requires dozens or more pieces of information. Seek information from the persons health care team.See 3 more doctor answers

2wks ago fist fighGot hit on occipital lobe, right side. I feel pain inside that area, even I turn to right side. No pain exercising and not bruised?
Would need to know: Type of cyst, exact location and size and if you have any symptoms. Contact physician requesting the study to explain.
Cyst in the brain: If it is just a cyst then there is no real danger other than a slight increase in bleeding. The key question is that this cyst is not associated with another lesion. Arachnoid cysts are now commonly found as part of mr studies.
TMD: There are over 300 different kinds of headaches, and treatment depends on symptoms it can range from a bite guard to different medicines. A headache specialist, or dentist who treats headaches may be able to help, or write back with more symptoms.
