In brief: Nothing to cure

But try to prevent further damage.
Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more.

Why do they always ask about "cure"? Most of modern medicine is "care," not "cure."
