What is white matter?

My Boyfriend had a MRI and it showed white matter, they don't seem to concerned. I just want to know what white matter is and is it always something bad? Can it be normal etc?

I would not say it is normal - but the causes can vary from headaches to high blood pressure on up to more significant issues like MS or strokes, so the doc kinda has to know how many, where, and the history of your boyfriend to evaluate the reason why they showed up.

I hope he has a copy of the report and the MRI - and if he is not happy with the doc, always get another opinion.
