What are the different types of hemorrhagic stroke?

ANSWER

Your doctor may tell you about two types of hemorrhagic stroke that are based on where the bleeding happens. If he says you had a subarachnoid hemorrhage, that means it happened in the area between your brain and skull. But if he says it was an intracerebral hemorrhage, your bleeding was inside the brain.
