Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Forgetting words or having difficulty in naming may indicate an underlying neurological problem. However, just one incident of having difficulty in naming may be insufficient to reach any definitive conclusion.
If this problem persists or if he develops any other associated symptoms like confusion, disorientation
, seeing non-existent things (hallucinations
), slurred speech, difficulty in comprehending speech, weakness or numbness in any part of the body, headache with vomiting
or urinary / bowel incontinence
, then you should seek urgent medical attention.
