MRI Brain

I recently saw a neurologist because I can't raise my right eyebrow or my forehead above the eyebrow. I have some aging lines on my left side so it has been like this for some time. He suggested I get an MRI, but thought I was probably born that way. I got an MRI and it said: 1. NO acute intracranial findings. 2. A 10 mm non-enhancing T2 hyperintense lesion was found in the right parietal lobe. It could represent small area of remote ischemia or a small area of gliosis; however non enhancing malignancy cannot be excluded. The lesion also has no mass effect or adjacent edema.

I have an idea what most of that means. It sounds like it probably isn't a tumor, but I'm wondering about early signs of MS. They want me to have another MRI in three months to see if there is progression. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Hi -
There are many things that can cause lesions. Lesions resulting from ischemia (circulation) appear differently from those resulting from demyelination (MS). If the radiologist had mentioned demyelination MS would be on the table. As the report reads it doesn't sound like it is.

Thank you for your response. I'm going to see a neurologist about the results soon. I didn't like the place I was at originally. Thank you for your thoughts. I'll try to go back and check for that word. Those things are hard to read.

Try and look for a section called "Impressions" it's usually much closer to English :-)
