I recently had an MRI and it showed a lesion on my brain. The neurologist says it might be an early symptom of MS. Is this correct?
The MRI scan alone can not diagnose MS. I'd be cautious about jumping to conclusions.
Please see this prior blog about diagnosing MS and the common problem interpreting the significance of abnormal MRI results by a provider that does not have subspecialty training in MS:
