Bleeding of the brain, or brain hemorrhage, is a condition similar to a stroke.

The reason for the problem is the bursting of the brain artery that leads to localized bleeding within the surrounding tissues.

The most dangerous fact about brain bleeding is the devastating influence on brain cells.

The process starts with the blood trauma, irritating brain tissues and causing swelling.

The primary condition is called cerebral edema that further leads to hematoma.

The combination of these issues enhances pressure on the brain tissues, decreasing the blood flow to the brain and killing brain cells.

Most commonly, bleeding appears inside the brain, mainly between the membranes and the brain, or between the brain covering and the skull.

Its reasons may be different, but their timely diagnosis and management are the keys to successful treatment.

The most typical causes of brain bleed include:

  • Aneurysm;

  • Head trauma;

  • High blood pressure;

  • Brain tumors;

  • Liver disorders;

  • Bleeding or blood clot impairments;

  • Amyloidal angiopathy and others.

The signs of a brain bleed may differ greatly, depending on the severity and location of the disorder, as well as the number of affected tissues.

Nevertheless, common symptoms include:

  • Sudden headache;

  • Nausea and vomiting;

  • Problems speaking;

  • Numbness and tingling;

  • Lethargy;

  • Vision impairments;

  • Swallowing problems;

  • Weakness and extreme tiredness etc.
