Hi Roopa.

Parasaggital Meningioma with indentation of the adjacent left posterior gyri and with peri-lesional white matter edema suggests mass lesion with compression of the underlying.

The only definitive treatment would be Surgical Excision.
In this case, surgery is definitely indicated at its compressing the underlying brain.

hope this answers our query.

Thanks and Regards
