Brief Answer:
Probably normal CT scan

Detailed Answer:
Dear
I am sorry for what you have passed
I think now it is time to be calm because all your deseases are gone.
Migraine attacks became less in frequency with ages so cluster headache will be gone by now
Bifrontal volume loss can be a normal process at your age
It can't be called a desease till confirmation
Examination don't make diagnoses, cninical symptoms confermed by radiologic examinations make diagnose
I don't think you have anything to worry right know.
In my opinion you are fully healthy and just schedule another head CT scan next year to see what happening with your frontal lobe.
Hope my answer helps you
Don't hesitate to contact me for further questions

Thank you so very much Dr. Ranxha. Please tell me:

Could the volume loss in the bilateral frontal lobe have anything to do with surgery I had on 5/8/14 Lumbar Fusion and Surgery I had on 7/11/14 I&D to clean out a small abscess from the first surgery?
Sorry I forgot to put it in the initial question,but I thought it had no bearing. It's now that I'm wondering. I received no blood transfusions.

Brief Answer:
Not related

Detailed Answer:
Dear
spinal surgery even long infections of spine can't cause that
In my opinion those two things aren't related
It can be called just normal so in my opinion you should wait next year when another CT scan has to be done

Yes, I had sinus surgery about 2 years ago and they found mold in my nose. Since the surgery I have had a bad smell in my nose. And I occasionally blow out green looks like clots and they smell horrible. How do I know if all the mold was retrieved during surgery. I don't feel like the surgery helped at all.
