MRI showed lesions of left anterior falcine, left anterior skull base region consistent with small meningiomas. Meaning?

I recently had an MRI for headaches and left hand and wrist numbness. MRI showed small extraaxial lesions of the left anterior falcine and left anterior skull base region consistant with small meningiomas. Few very small non enhancing high FLAIR and T2 signal abnormalities of the white matter tracs felt to represent areas of focal ischemia or demyelinization. No enhancing lesion is seen. What does this mean?

Thank you for posting your MRI brain report on Healthcare Magic.
First of all, I would like to reassure that your MRI brain findings do not represent any serious neurological illness.
Meningiomas are brain tumors, which are benign. At this stage you do not need surgery. However, in some cases, they can grow and become large, when surgery would be required.
Small ischemic lesions represent lack of blood flow to brain. Screening for risk factors such as high BP, sugars, cholesterol, etc should be screened for and treated.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
