help with understanding MRI report

My boyfriend age of 42 who just started seeing doctors six months ago has had a very tramatic childhood and life. He has several mental health diagnosis's as well as he has been diagnosed with mild MR.  He has had and EEG and an MRI done. My question pertains to the MRI.  I was not able to get on the doctors forum so I hope maybe someone can help me out. It says there are several very small, scattered high T2-weighted FLAIR white matter lesions of questionable clinical significance. They are not normal for age.  They may represent some form of demyelination or gliosis.  Given thier presence it says another follow up MRI in three months to confirm stability.  No abnormality of the brainstem or cerebellum is apparent.  I have done alot of searching on the web but can't get a clear answer on what this all means.  Thank you very much for any responses.

Sometimes the white matter lesions are seen with Multiple Sclerosis (demyelinazation) as well as some other diseases. This has to be put together with symptoms for a diagnosis most likely.
