Could be anything: When I write my radiology reports, I don't expect the ordering doctor to ONLY say, "You have a brain lesion, see this guy/gal." The MRI report should have been discussed with you in more detail. If the ordering doc had no idea what the radiologist was describing, he/she should have called the radiologist directly before your office visit. See the neurologist soon and get this cleared up.
