Confused about "lesions"

Helllo guys

I was told i had lesions on both hemispheres on my brain and cervical spine.

Is this something to worry about?

It is something that your medical advisors will want to get to the bottom of, certainly. ‘Lesion’ generally implies damage of some sort, but it is quite a common word in the medical world and, while it can certainly apply to MS damage, it can apply to lots of other things too. In other words, it is not MS-specific. Whether it is something for you to worry about in the context of your particular circumstances is something that only your doctors can can tell you, I’m afraid.
