I have just had a ct scan following a fall which thankfully just badly bruised my right cheek/jaw bone area. However the report states that I have a 10mm cystic lesion within the inferior left basal ganglia (? prominent vasculature ?cyst) which is not related to my fall.
Where is this part of the brain? I have had ongoing headaches for years, wear glasses,but I have recently been having treatment for headaches and ashma by an acupunturist with good results with the head aches. Could this basal ganglia thingee be a problem and is there something I should do to followup with the ct scan from the hospital?
I just had a similar CT scan and the doctor said that the it
helped confirm that I had early Parkinson's Disease.
There was no cyst on the ganglia so your problem could
be much different. I would definitely follow up with a
neurologist. That area seems to affect walking for me.
In a recent CT scan I had a problem in the
inferior left basal ganglia which lead my neurolgist
to confirm early Parkinson's disease. There was
no cyst involved so your problem is not the same
but you should definitely see a neurologist to learn
exactly what is wrong.
