Brain Tumors/i have a qustion about lipoma


In the LEFT CP angle there is a 1.6 x 0.7 CM lipoma.
    This may be insignificant but could possibly cause mass effect
    upon the LEFT vestibular nerve. i have been getting light headed and dizzy and head hurts

Lipomas in the brain very rarely cause any symptoms of any kind. Your lipoma is also quite small (an inch is 2.54 cm or 25.4 mm), your lesion is 16 x 7 mm. So I doubt very much that your left vestibular nerve is in any danger. Besides if it was that should have shown very clearly on your MRI brain scans that you most probably must have had since otherwise we would not know much of this lipoma - if indeed anything at all. Treatment of these benign lesions is almost never necessary. Good luck!
