32 y/o fem. Had negative MRI last yr w/2 mm frontal lobe lesion.Now having dull, VERY brief headaches,nausea,&dizziness. Should I have follow up MRI?

I would say no: A 2mm frontal lesion is probably incidental. I would not expect it to cause brief headaches and dizziness. If you have a follow up MRI, it would be to see if there was any change to this incidental lesion. That is not likely. ...Read more
