Question life span of a brain lesion?

Just wondering about the life expectancy of a brain lesion. I read on this board that they can spread across your brain (like clouds in the sky?) Sounds very strange. Do you have them forever or can they heal? How long does it take them to heal? Can you still experience the same symptoms after they disappear from the MRI? I have one lesion which has shown up for the past 3 MRIs (18 mths) and am hoping that on the next one it will be gone. Would this mean I am getting better? Smudge

Re: life span of a brain lesion?

they can heal over time and the specific symptoms at that time can go away. though they may come back nothing is guaranteed! but yes brain lesions can heal.
god bless!
