Hi Flora, Thank you for the question.
Swelling of the brain or cerebral edema can be caused by various health conditions which treatment of course depends on the underlying medical condition. Every part of the brain regulates body functions. The presence of swelling in the brain can cause impaired bodily functions ranging from impaired consciousness, impaired cognition, weak legs and hands, difficulty communicating, vision problems, and others. In addition, this condition also causes complaints of headache, nausea, vomiting, seizures, dizziness.
Some of the causes of brain swelling are:
stroke head injury, which is a condition of disruption of blood flow to the brain due to blockage of blood vessels or rupture of brain blood vessels, infections of the brain such as meningitis, hydrocephalus encephalitis, which is the buildup of brain fluid, brain tumors. Do you know the cause of this swelling of the brain? Usually the doctor will perform a series of tests to find the cause, starting from blood tests, x-rays, examining brain fluid through the spine (lumbar puncture), CT scan, or MRI. Please discuss with the doctor who treats your mother so that you get better information from the doctor because this doctor is the one who understands your mother's current condition better. If the cause has been treated, the brain swelling will also improve. Don't hesitate to ask the doctor who treated your mother yes.
