Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about your father.

You need to talk with your father's neurologist, who knows the extent of the facial paralysis, suspected cause and treatment options. Apparently, medication and physical therapy are the treatments of choice.

I can provide you with general information.

Facial paralysis occurs when a person is no longer able to move some or all of the muscles on one side of the face.

Facial paralysis is almost always caused by:

Damage or swelling of the facial nerve, which carries signals from the brain to the muscles of the face
Damage to the area of the brain that sends signals to the muscles of the face
In people who are otherwise healthy, facial paralysis is often due to Bell's palsy. This is a condition in which the facial nerve becomes inflamed.

Stroke may cause facial paralysis. With a stroke, other muscles on one side of the body may also be involved.

Facial paralysis that is due to a brain tumor usually develops slowly. Symptoms can include headaches, seizures, or hearing loss.

Infection of the brain or surrounding tissues, Lyme disease, sarcoidosis, which is a disease in which inflammation occurs in the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, eyes, skin, or other tissues, and a tumor that presses on the facial nerve can cause facial paralysis.
