I would guess a tumor that started outside the brain and was undetected and now has infilitrated inside. Doesn't look pretty that's for sure

It can't be anything good. Do you ever tell us the answers on these or do I always miss the answers?

looks like a mass pressing down on Dura mater hence an epidural hematoma... that's my answer and I am sticking with it!

Something Congenital (e.g.stem cell origin)!! this very firm borders around it narrow down lot of possibilities .. its not heamatoma (for sure i guess) well brain origin tumor shouldn't make this firm border surrounding it or should it ? Metastasis is pos

It looks like something got into the ear and just spread and looks like some kind of tumor give us the answer please Dr.Gupta

er, ps--whatever it is looks like it's extradural and probably amenable to surgery if that contrast doesn't indicate an intractable hemorrhage risk. It's sort of meningioma-like but I think it's something else.

ladykayaker 1710 days ago

A really big, invasive cholesteatoma? Whatever it is grew slowly and isn't causing a lot of reaction in the brain tissue--the mass itself is full of contrast but there's no contrast uptake in the brain, + ventricles aren't flattened.
