Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that the MRI brain findings do not represent any serious brain disease.

MRI findings of your brain suggest an area of damage due to injury to your head, which has healed. It is like a scar that we get on our skin once a wound has healed.

No specific treatment (including any surgery) is required for your MRI abnormality.

The cause of your headache is most likely migraine. It needs preventive medications such as flunarizine, beta blockers, etc.

Please consult a neurologist.

Wishing you good health,
