What causes persistent vertigo?

I had a mri due to vertigo and found nothing that would contribute to it, however they found a 3mm lesion in frontal lobe. The doctor said they could not explain but it could be eschemic, ms or infection or it could have been there for ever. I am healthy 54 year old. I get migraines a few times a year due to weather. I am still suffering from vertigo since mid December. Should I be concerned about this lesion? The doc suggested doing another Mri next year. I have seen an eye ear and throat specialist for the vertigo and she found nothing in my ears that would cause it. Do you have any other suggestions

As a first line management, you can try drugs like Betahistine for symptomatic relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult an ENT specialist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
