Small abnormality in left temporal lobe and doctors don't know what it is. What do I do now?

In brief: Followup studies

Your small lesion could be congenital, post-traumatic, or acquired, and management depends on what symptoms prompted discovery.
Typically, if you have epilepsy or focal weakness, we would obtain followup mri's about every six months to make certain this was not enlarging. Would get visit to a neurosurgeon, and talk about future management.
