Hello dear and welcome to the medhelp forum. Cerebral small vessel disease is a group of diseases, which affects small blood vessels in the brain. This could be related to increasing age, secondary to hypertension and obesity and manifest as lacunar infarcts, lesions in the white matter, hemorrhages. Consult a neurologist for detailed clinical evaluation. Factors that could be controlled are high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia under the guidance of a physician. Wishing you all the best.
