MRI showed a 9 mm lesion in my head inadvertently?
I am female aged 54 but still quite fit after having problems with my ears after a severe ear infection I was sent for a hearing test and an MRI to be on the safe side . This came back normal but they inadvertently found a 9 mm lesion in my head I’m unsure of where abouts as I didn’t understand the terms used but was told it shouldn’t be where it was . My consultant then said if it were his relative he would want an advanced MRI with dye injected . This seems rather a large lesion and I’m worried I have been getting stiff neck regularly also and wandered if it’s a symptom thanks for any help.
If course any lesions in the head should be investigated well.
I agree with the opinion that told you ..you need a dye MRI and the stiff neck can be related to a disorder in the brain or the brain covering layers.
These findings should be correlated with your symptoms .
Can you exactly paste the report here so I can help you ..
In my opinion stiff neck is caused by your stress and worries , not related to the lesion
I hope you can provide more information about the location of the lesion for more professional opinion
Thank you and Good Luck
any lesions in head need medical attention and a perfect diagnosis to avoid long term effects.
you should post the report here so that we can guide you with precision.
THE SYMPTOMS MAY OR MAY NOT BE RELATED TO THE LESION.
BUT STILL YOU NEED TO PINPOINT THE DIAGNOSIS. GET THE NECESSARY INVESTIGATIONS DONE.
BETTER IF YOU COULD POST THE REPORT HERE.
any sized lesions in the head deserve a special attention.
doctors have rightly adviced you to get the MRI with dye injection (MRI with contrast).
This will show more details about the lesion ,its characteristics,its boundries and the surrounding tissue affection.
