Doctor insights on: Parietal Lobe Tumor

Neoplasms (Definition)

"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

Brain right ventricle 8mm lesion -cyst or tumor?

Brain right ventricle 8mm lesion -cyst or tumor?

Hard to say: If the interpretation on the MRI by the radiologist is that it is a cyst, then it is likely benign. It also depends if there is any area of enhancement that would suggest a tumor. Also if you have serial MRI scans, you can tell if it is getting bigger or changing which is more likely a tumor. The location in the ventricle is important too. If it obstructs the foramen it could be a problem. ...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

My mother, 84, MRI scan> subacute infarcts, bilateral frontal lobes, small vessel ischematic changes inthe basal ganglia, periventricular white matter?

Small vessel disease: Mri in a 84 years old lady showing infarcts and small vessel disease means she is having ministrokes. That is very common in that age group. If she has heart disease or carotid artery disease or risk factors like high BP or diabetes or high lipids they should be controlled and she should follow up with her dr who can give her further recommendations. ...Read more

S+s of end stage primary brain cancer, (aa iii) r medial temporal lobe, diffuse numerous cells. Growing!/brainstem and posterior temp./basal ganglia?

Ask for more info: Signs and symptoms can vary greatly with any 'end-stage' cancer. Things like if it has spread to other organs, impacting functional status and alertness (sleeping more, in bed most of the time), causing pain/seizures, and so on. His doctors can maybe determine what is most likely. If not involved already ask for hospice or palliative care help as they could also help answer what the s/s might be. ...Read more

Sharp pain in temporal parietal lobe?

Sharp pain in temporal parietal lobe?

Impossible: You cannot have a pain in your temporal or parietal lobe. Your brain has no pain nerves. All sensations are processed in the brain but experienced elsewhere in the body. Whatever pain you're feeling, it's not in your brain tissue. ...Read more

What is frontal lobe epilepsy?

What is frontal lobe epilepsy?

Frontal lobe seizure: Frontal lobe epilepsy (fle) refers to epilepsy where the seizure focus is located in the frontal lobes. Because the frontal lobes are involved in so many functions the symptoms of fle can be very varied and can include motor, emotional and cognitive symptoms. Fle can also be difficult to diagnose. See http://www.Epilepsy.Com/epilepsy/epilepsy_frontallobe for more information. ...Read more

Ct head scan results are frontal lobe sulci bilateral prominent. Prominate subarachnold space. Midline lipoma. Anterior interhemispheric fissure promi?

Atrophy: The midline lipoma probably doesnt warrant any treatment. These are usually incidental findings, but they can be associated with some congenital brain disorders. You basically seem to have less brain in your skull relative to fluid spaces relative to others. Have your doctor review the scan with you. ...Read more

Solitary subcentimeter nodule in the left thyroid lobe?

Watch/retest: Unless you have a thyroid cancer history, the nodule is suspicious on ultrasound or other factors are in play -- check serum thyroglobulin and thyroid function. Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more

Radiologist report says bilateral gliosis posterior frontal lobe. Where is the posterior frontal lobe located and can it cause my nocturnal seizures. ?

Radiologist report says bilateral gliosis posterior frontal lobe. Where is the posterior frontal lobe located and can it cause my nocturnal seizures. ?

The frontal lobes: Occupy about the front half of the top part of the brain, called the cerebrum. The posterior area would be towards the back - just in front and above the ear - see attached image - the back part of the pink area. Gliosis is like scar tissue in the brain, and could cause seizures. Please discuss this with your neurologist and correlate with eeg and other test results. ...Read more

What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?

Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more

Brain CT scan shows three calcified nodular lesions with no perilesional edema in left frontal and left occipital. Largest measuring approx 5x3mm?

See comments: Not sure of your precise question, but will comment on your results. The lesions could raise a question of an old parasitic infection possibly cysticercosis, and would be well to check a stool sample for ova and parasites. Plain x-rays of your thigh muscles might show similar calcifications and confirm this diagnosis. You might benefit from an opinion from a neurologist, or infectious disease. ...Read more

Hetrogenous thyriod nodule without evidence of discrete thyroid nodule it right lobe measures 5.7x1.4x1.7 while left lobe 5.4x1.4x1.7?

Hashimoto's disease?: A very common thyroid condition, known as hashimoto or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis -- is when the body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This can cause an enlarged inefficient thyroid gland (large size of ultrasound measurements) and scarred heterogeneous appearance (in ultrasound description). Eventually many patients will become hypothyroid. Thyroid antibody levels are usually high. ...Read more

A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?

Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read more

38y f. Brain MRI shows left maxillary polyp, partial empty sella, small chronic ischaemic lesions in subcorticle frontoparietal white matter. Cure?

Nothing to cure: But try to prevent further damage. Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more. ...Read more
