Recurrence o might be due to exposure to a contaminated site. Auto-immune causes are also possible. ...Read more

My dad passed out hitting his head on tile floor couple of weeks ago. Er CT was neg. Mri this week showed 'nodule on brain'. Could it be a slow bleed?
Small contusion?: It's very difficult to say what this "nodule" is without seeing images, but it is possible this may represent a tiny brain contusion, which was better detected on the mri. Slow bleeds typically occur in the subdural space and assume a more lentiform shape, not nodular, so given the limited information I would say it is unlikely to represent slow, ongoing bleed. ...Read more

Can a throid nodule cause head aches, ears blocked and throat sore. .. AT DIFFERENT TIMES. It is not a cold!
No: Hi. Thyroid nodules can be over-active (over produce thyroid hormone) or not and benign or malignant. Most symptoms are due to thyroid function, not mass effect. Whatever doctor is evaluating your thyroid nodule would have checked your thyroid function. So without you stating, we must assume you're not hyperthyroid. In no case would I expect your symptoms to be due to anything to do with thyroid. ...Read more
