Brain MRI
Can someone interpret this brain MRI for me?  I'm thinking it's nothing, but my oncologist is insisting I see a neurologist.  Thank you!

20 milliliters MultiHance / Cerebellar tonsils are within normal limits in position. Signal void seen
in vertebral, basilar, and internal carotid arteries. Ventricles normal in size and position. Post contrast views show no abnormal enhancement / Diffusion-weighted images show no acute findings.
FINDINGS
Minimal signal alteration in the brain parenchyma which is nonspecific but could be related to ischemic leukoencephalopathy or a demyelinating process.

: No acute findings. No evidence of metastatic disease.

Hi there. Your MRI has evidence of slight demyelinating process which means the myelin sheath or the protective covering of nerves. This impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves, causing impairment of sesation, movememt, cognition, etc depending on the nerves involved. it could be caused by some autoimmune disease, genetically, etc. some demyelinating central nervous system diseases are multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. Consult a neurologist for the best guidance.
