I am 48 years old and had an MRI performed

I am 48 years old and had an MRI performed due to symptoms of tinnitus , vertigo, memory loss , and extreme fatigue. The MRI showed mild central volume loss out of proportion for patient age and periventricular white matter increased T2 signal .
I am reading many varying opinions about this ranging from “incidental “ to increased risk for Alzheimer’s . I am a runner , non smoking , mildly elevated BP on meds. I do have a past hx of migraines which have resolved over the past 8 or more years. I also had viral meningitis at age 25.
I have an appt with a neurologist but would like some advice before I hear his opinion

Dr. Andrew Rynne. Recently, after having a annual physical, the Dr. inform me that my PSA had gone to high normal at a 5.2 reading. This past week I met with a Urologist. The Dr performed a rectal exam, and found a bump on the left side of the prostate. I have requested a MRI rather than a biopsy. I am 75 years old, and the Dr. that preformes my annual physical pronounced me in excellent health..... Also, I stay very busy operating my Christmas Tree Farming operation, doing very physical work. There is no history of prostate cancer in my family. My Dad lived to be 94 years, and Mother to 91 years. ...Dr., what are your recommendations?...Thanking you in advance.
