In brief: Many causes

White matter lesions can be caused by a very wide range of things, ranging from toxic exposure to multiple sclerosis to hypertension to chronic migraines.
A neurologist can help you put the imaging findings into perspective with the rest of your clinical picture, and guide further workup and treatment as needed.
