Headaches. MRI scan reads mild generalized micro vascular disease. Meaning?

My brain MRI scam reads mild generalized micro vascular disease . No infarct. I also have a small tumor outside the brain sack which they are watching on a 12 month basis. None of the doctors seem concerned about this scan or the other two previous MRI scans. I have headaches every day, I am afraid to talk to people because I can on find a word to finish a sentence. My memory is going down hill at a rapid rate. Is this just old age (79) or do I have a problem that cannot be treated.

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

Your headache and memory problem requires evaluation and this is not related to old age. The tumor which you have mentioned may be responsible for headache and memory problem. I am sorry to note that you have not described/posted the exact MRI report which would have helped me guide you better. You stay relaxed and get evaluated by a local neurologist. You may require other blood tests like vitamin B12, thyroid function tests. All your problem can be treated.

Hope this clarifies

Best wishes
