Small collection of: Blood within placenta. It is usually contained and does not cause bleeding or issues for the fetus. Your doctor will probably follow the size and location of it and may refer you to an mfm specialist just to be safe.

Cherry angiomata: Are common benign lesions made up of capillaries. They commonly are noticed during pregnancy. There is no reason to remove them. If for cosmetic reasons you want them removed, they are easily ablated by laser in the office setting. They look likes red moles.

Can swimming at "Big Bear lakes" surrounded by algae give you deadly brain eating disease? I swam all weekend and woke up with headache. Back home now, still waking up with dull headache.

Can swimming at "Big Bear lakes" surrounded by algae give you deadly brain eating disease? I swam all weekend and woke up with headache. Back home now, still waking up with dull headache.

"Brain-eating...": Deadly brain-eating disease: You have a very colorful way with words. If you're able to post that, I don't think too much of your brain can have been consumed yet. Do you mean the lake in the San Bdo Mtns? If you're worried, see your doctor. Although the chances of your having a deadly brain-munching disease are low, some screening and surveillance wouldn't be inappropriate.

I am worried about brain eating amoeba. I jumped into a lake in Maine 4 days ago and got water way up my nose (coughed it out). How high is the risk?

I am worried about brain eating amoeba. I jumped into a lake in Maine 4 days ago and got water way up my nose (coughed it out). How high is the risk?

I wouldn't worry: It's very rare, less than 40 cases in the past 10 years. The symptoms start 1-7 days after infection. It is mostly found in the warmer waters of the southern states. I don't think there have been any cases in Maine. Seek care if you suddenly develop fever with headache, stiff neck and vomiting.

Is a venous angioma of the brain anything to concerned about? (oh, I believe I got this after a hard fall). Thanks.

Is a venous angioma of the brain anything to concerned about? (oh, I believe I got this after a hard fall). Thanks.

Venous angioma: Angiomas could be non symptomatic. When become symptomatic, may cause seizures, headaches, bleeding and so forth. Neuro-radiological evaluation is necessary.

Just had a MRI on brain it says I have a venous differential adnormality in opptiucal lobe what could this mean not there 8months ago?

Just had a MRI on brain it says I have a venous differential adnormality in opptiucal lobe what could this mean not there 8months ago?

My guess: My guess is a "developmental venous anomaly of the occipital lobe". If that is the case, then it is an abnormality of a vein in the brain which frequently is an incidental finding. Best of luck, Dr. Ayman Omar

Been to u of u unversity he said mild CP and then looked at brain scan and said normal a new one recently small venous diff adnormal what is it?

Been to u of u unversity he said mild CP and then looked at brain scan and said normal a new one recently small venous diff adnormal what is it?

Hard to say: CP is a label used to describe a static (stable) disorder of motion or posture related to a brain injury occurring during pregnancy or the first 3 yrs of life. Any issue arising after that point is approached as a different problem. Your description of a new scan is hard to factor in. Why was it done ; how much later? Many scans on nl pts show minor artifacts that have little importance.

Would a 3hour neck surgery doing a disectomy and a fusion on c5andc4 be ok when I have a venous angionoma in my brain with no known cause they docs ok?

Would a 3hour neck surgery doing a disectomy and a fusion on c5andc4 be ok when I have a venous angionoma in my brain with no known cause they docs ok?

Probably yes: A venous angioma is an abnormality of blood vessel that one is born with. They rarely bleed, so the presence of one is of no consequence when planning elective surgery. Best to discuss this with your doctor.

Can I lift weights in gym if developmental venous anomaly was found on MRI of brain? (no symptoms, it was noted it was small size, supratentorial)

Can I lift weights in gym if developmental venous anomaly was found on MRI of brain? (no symptoms, it was noted it was small size, supratentorial)

Developmental venous: Developmental venous anomaly, also known as DVA or venous angioma, is a benign -not dangerous formation of veins that drain into the larger central vein. The anomaly does not require surgery or other treatment. No restriction on activity necessary. Okay to lift weights. Ref- http://www. Hopkinsmedicine. Org/healthlibrary/conditions/nervous_system_disorders/developmental_venous_anomalies_134, 73/

How to differentiate arterial and venous infarct in MRI brain? Without mr angio?

How to differentiate arterial and venous infarct in MRI brain? Without mr angio?

Several factors: One of the factors is the distribution of the infarct. The arteries of the brain have a very well-defined territory that they supply and venous infarcts may not be isolated to one of those territories. Also, there may be direct or indirect evidence on a noncontrast ct or MRI that suggest occlusion of one of the major venous structures. Clinical history is also considered.

Does a venous angioma of the brain weaken vessels? Making headaches more probe to a certain spot?

Does a venous angioma of the brain weaken vessels? Making headaches more probe to a certain spot?

It depends: Most venous angiomas are small and asymptomatic big ones can cause headaches. You should be seeing a neurosurgeon to determine if treatment is needed.
