Need whole picture: It is difficult to answer your question with this isolated finding. Would have to know the patients entire history and have all data that is available. The information you have could suggest a lesion/ mass in that area of the brain. Please review the total MRI findings with the physician who ordered the study or the doc who knows your father's case best.
