Thanks for writing to us.
First of all I want to tell you that, just relax it is not going to hurt you at all. MRI signal in your brain is too small and it is old (chronic )change. Affected areas function is already taken up by nearby brain areas. This is a very nonspecific finding in brain. There is no need of any treatment for that. You will live a long life similar to normal people. There is no change required in your eating habits, of course presuming you eat a healthy and balanced diet. Your complete blood investigations are absolutely within normal limits.
Dont think about this report, you are a perfectly normal, young person .Just enjoy your work and life.
Hope I have answered your query.
Thanking you.

MRI changes may be due to a minimal injury to neurons during your lifetime - that's why there are changes in brain. But brain has unique capacity to take over function of other neuron and you are doing fine now.

Frontal lobe is related to personality and behaviour of person. Hearing centre is not located in frontal region; it is in post central gyrus part of parietal lobe which is situated posteriorly. Therefore the MRI changes have nothing to do with hearing.

You can consult a board certified ENT specialist and discuss the cause and the treatment of hearing issues.

Hope you have got your query answered. If you have other doubts I will be glad to clear them.
