  1. This is the bump i am talking about, please see the picture, i have highlighted in red,

Hello doctor? sorry to rush you but i am going out to a wedding, do you an answer for me?

This is Dr. David

I see the other expert has opted out

that bump on the brain MRI scan is a subarachnoid cyst on the surface of the brain

I'm not sure why they didn't mention it.

it is benign.

let me know if you have other questions.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

did you see the other images? is it anything to be concerned about?

yes, I looked at the other images.

nothing to be concerned about.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

is it normal? what is next course of action?

yes, your scans are normal.

I see you have a history of panic attacks and loss of consciousness

I would ask your doctor to refer you to an neurologist for EEG testing to rule out seizure disorder

also you need to talk to your doctor about treatment for your anxiety disorder and panic attacks.

let me know if you have other questions.

Yes, how did you know i had history of panic attacks? actually i have only had 1 mild panic attack due to exhaustion and i have never loss consciousness in my life, I have had done EEG testing and everyhting was normal, i may have other questions, i will have to start a new topic, i What are your thoughts?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.


on the top of the MRI scan report, under clinical history: it is says you have a history of loss of consciousness and history of panic attacks

this history given to the radiologist can sometimes be wrong and often is incomplete.

so sorry about that confusion.

it doesn't sound like you have had a seizure or anything like a seizure.

you really don't need any additional testing.

you requested this MRI scan?

not your doctor?

the scan is normal

you don't need any more "course of action"
