Hello, my name is Shintia. I want to ask. At that time I had my head examined which was often sick and dizzy almost every day … finally the doctor advised me to CT.scan I followed it and the results came out after 3 days … the doctor saw and said there was a little lump was distributed behind my head which he said was swelling or fluid I did not understand .. and said he was not dangerous so I did not need to worry .. because the doctor said like that I was relieved and stopped treating .. but after I stopped the headache recurred again .. I went back again and the doctor’s response was still the same … I wanted to ask if it was dangerous … and on the paper the result of the CT scan was written, what was that celebrity edema writing?
Hello Shintia, Thank you for the question.
Do you know what lump the doctor meant? Have you re-consulted with your doctor and asked about the causes and treatments that can be done? Cerebral edema is a medical language for brain swelling. This condition is a condition that needs further attention because it has the potential to be life threatening. Some causes of cerebral edema are head injuries, infections, tumors, strokes, hydrocephalus, and height. In addition to headaches, sufferers may experience nausea, vomiting, neck stiffness, convulsions, loss of consciousness, weakness or paralysis of the limbs, impaired vision.
If you experience these symptoms again, you can consult with another neurologist to ask for a second opinion by bringing the results of the CT scan and other results you have. The doctor will again ask about this complaint and examine you. Discuss with your doctor about the cause of this complaint. Do not hesitate to ask the doctor if you are not clear about the doctor's explanation. Understanding what happens to you is important so that you also know about further prevention and treatment. The doctor will provide further treatment according to your condition. You can take paracetamol or other pain medications to treat headaches. Make sure you rest well enough and limit physical activity if the headaches get heavy.
I hope this helps.
