Thanks for writing to us.
The single hyperintense lesion can be due to an area of calcification. This can be due to an old injury or age related degenerative changes.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

What does stable small focus in the right frontallobe mean
It means that a small abnormality in the right front part of the brain is present and unchanged since the last scan. If it has not changed in a long time, it's unlikely to be cancer. But nothing more specific about the abnormality can be said at this time. It might be a scar, or something left over from a very small stroke or bleed. Perhaps a small head trauma caused it. You may ask your doctor.
