    Prevention

    Treatment or control of underlying disorders may reduce the risk of developing intracerebral hemorrhage. High blood pressure should be treated. Do not stop taking medications unless told to do so by your doctor.

    Always use safety equipment and take safety precautions in sports, recreation, and work. For example, use hard hats, bicycle or motorcycle helmets, and seat belts. Never dive into water if you do not know the depth of the water or if there may be rocks under the surface.

    If you are taking a blood thinner (such as Coumadin), follow your doctor's instructions on how to take the medicine and when to have blood tests for monitoring the medication.
