Hello,

Thanks for the query,

I understand your concern

Please note that MRI changes in the brain need to be correlated with clinical findings. The changes that you have described can be seen in persons with diabetes and high blood pressure. You need to control your blood sugar and blood pressure. If you do not have symptoms of pain, weakness of the right side, you do not have worry about these findings and if the MRI was done for some other indications.

Hope this clarifies
Please get back to me in case you have any other concern
