Bilateral inferior turbinate fullness is seen, shows a concha bullosa- MRI reports. Explain

Hello Dr. I d like your valuable feedback and explanation for my case, is it serious and risky or not. also please advise about what to do. I m 31yrs. old, 88kg. live with H.blood pressure for the last 7-yrs and since 2 yrs. it s controlled by COVERAM medication and it s within normal limits now. I went to a neurologist because I have a headache and noticed slight change in the shape of my Skull , left H. side compared with the right H.side. He advised to make X-Ray and MRI. I did both, in X-Ray it showed normal. For MRI the report is as below, - The cerebral parnechyma shows evidence of a tiny speck of T2W hyperintensity in the right posterior basifrontal subcortial while matter just deep to the left-side insular cortex also showed evidence of a tiny speck of T2W hyperintenesity. The above tiny specks of T2w hyperintensity are suggestive of tiny specks of ischemic insults versus demyelination. - The left side shows a concha bullosa . The nasal seputum adjacent to the concha bullosa is showing a slight bluge to the right of midline. Otherwise are normal like the below, - The basal ganglia , thalami and internal capsules. - The cerebellum, pons, midbrain and medulla. - The ventricular system in caliber with the septum in midline. - The fissures, sulci and basal cisterns. - The pituitary, infundibulum and optic schiasma. - The corpus callosum with no evidence of any altered signal intensity. - The VIIth-VIIIth nerve complex appear essentially normal in both side. - The paranasal sinuses. Bilateral inferior turbinate fullness is seen.

hello. as far as your nose is concerned. i do'nt think you have anything to worry. choncha bullosa means air cell in the middle turbinate, and has to be operated only if it causes sinusitis or nasal blockage, similarly turbinate swelling need not be operated unless you have nasal blockage due to it. please consult your neurologist for the mri brain report. thanks
