Cerebral Stroke

A cerebral stroke is a serious condition in which blood flow to the brain gets interrupted, potentially leading to brain damage or cell death. A stroke can be due to a blood clot or an internal bleeding in the brain, and people with high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, diabetes and smokers are at a higher risk of developing a stroke.

In case you have had a stroke, you need immediate medical attention! Ask someone nearby for help and seek emergency care.
