Hi,

Are there other symptoms present? It is difficult to diagnose cancer without direct clinical examination, taking your complete medical history, and reviewing your MRI/ CT scan. The white spots in the brain may indicate old age or areas which have been damaged.Other tests may need to be done such as visual evoked potential,  spinal tap with analysis of the fluid, and other blood tests. If you have them also on your lungs, have this evaluated further for proper management.

Take care and keep us posted.
