Bleeding on the brain

Hi Doctor,

I wrote to you previously about my maid who has a swollen head and a swollen right eye. She went to the doctor today and was told that she has bleeding on the brain. Can this be due to a tumour? How does one treat this? What pain medication can I give her? They gave her Panado, but I think she needs something stronger.

Thanks again

Hallo Shelby
Did he refer her to neurology? Bleeding of the brain would cause a stroke. Isn't it bleeding under the scalp due to an injury? Is she on a blood thinning medication?
