I feel my head is exploding and current is  going through my head, CT scan shows i have a mucous retention cyst in the anterolateral left spheniod sin?

Head ache: Mucous retention cyst will not cause those symptoms and it is likely an incidental finding unrelated to your headache. Since we don't know anything about you, not even something as basic as your age, let alone your medical history and meds, we cant offer you relevant and useful response especially when there is not a real question posed. ...Read more

What does a head CT scan rule out, if you fell and hit your head?

Fracture or bleed: A non contrast head ct is indicated if there has been significant trauma to the head to rule out bleeding around or within the brain. It will also identify fractures of the skull that would be missed on a regular x-ray. ...Read more

Sometimes subtle MRI findings can suggest it, but are non-specific ("unidentified bright objects"). But it can take a long time before MS presents itself. If seriously concerned, see a neurologist. ...Read more

Shop around.: Depending or not if contrast is used, it could range from a few hundred (300) to a thousand plus. If you're fortunate enough to live in a location with various imaging centers - just call them. And ask them for their "cash price". Unfortunately, there's not good transparency in prices for medical care, but with enough work you can get some comparison prices. Good luck! ...Read more

Little: Ct scans of the head show the brain- not the nerves. Sometimes you can see a few of the cranial nerves. The purpose of the ct scan is to see the brain for diseases within the brain tissue. ...Read more
