Yes, there tends to be differences in symptoms of chronic subdural hematoma in young patients vs. elderly.

A report in the journal Injury points out differences in symptom presentation of chronic subdural hematoma in young patients (under age 40) and elderly (over age 75).

Young Patients with Chronic Subdural Hematoma

The researchers observed particular characteristics of symptoms: a higher incidence of headache, and a higher incidence of vomiting, along with a shorter time span between initial trauma and corrective surgery.

Elderly Patients

They tended to have symptoms relating to change in mental status, deficits in motor control and larger collections of blood in the brain.

Pertaining to the patients in this analysis, there was no statistically significant difference in the rate of surgical complications.
