Cerebral hemorrhaging is a type of intracranial hemorrhaging that occurs within the brain’s tissue. Cerebral hemorrhaging may be onset by brain trauma or occur spontaneously during a hemorrhagic stroke. In either case, it is extremely dangerous and must be diagnosed and treated immediately.

Symptoms and Treatment of Cerebral Hemorrhaging
Unfortunately, symptoms of cerebral hemorrhaging are oftentimes sudden and hard to detect. As pressure builds up inside the cranium from bleeding, victims may experience a number of cognitive dysfunctions and physical symptoms including:
- Memory loss
- Fading consciousness
- Back ache
- Swollen optic nerve
- Increase in blood pressure
- Abnormal respiratory pattern
- Widened pulse pressure
Treatment for a cerebral hemorrhage must be fast because nearly 40% of all people who suffer from a cerebral hemorrhage die. Brain hemorrhaging may be detected by a CT scan, and can be stopped by immediate surgery or medication.
Despite the high risk of experiencing serious side effects, the birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin remain on the market. These drugs have been associated with cerebral hemorrhaging.
