I was diagnois with a Small intrinsically T1 hyperintense 3mm microhemorrhage within the left paracentral lobule....
My head feels like a ticking time bomb,
They are setting up a referal, to see a specialist and another MRI in 6 to 8 weeks
Do these continue to bleed, what type of treatment to repair the bleed
also, Lt side Breast CA


This is a tiny hemorrhage, and should heal on its own.

The question is - what did this come from?

If it was because of trauma, then nothing else needs to be done.

If there is an underlying vascular malformation, then the repeat MRI in several weeks (after the blood has reabsorbed) will allow the doctors to have a better look at the underlying issue. Often times, a small bleed like this could be due to an issue called a cavernous malformation, which is just a collection of small blood vessels, and in most cases, nothing needs to be done.

So to answer your question, do these continue to bleed? The answer depends on the exact diagnosis, which probably has not been obtained yet.

But there should be no treatment necessary other than time to "repair" the bleed, when it is this small.
