please evaluate my MRI results?

Diffusion weighted images of the brain demonstrate no evidence of

acute infarction. There is an approximately 5 mm nonenhancing cystic structure

in the right frontal periventricular white matter most likely representing an

enlarged perivascular space or neural glial cyst. There is no FLAIR

hyperintensity surrounding the structure. There is no evidence of acute

intracranial hemorrhage, extra-axial collection, mass effect, midline shift,

herniation or hydrocephalus. The ventricles, sulci and cisterns are age

appropriate. There is prominence of the retrocerebellar cistern likely a

congenital variant of normal anatomy. The signal intensities of the brain

parenchyma are within normal limits. The susceptibility weighted sequences

demonstrate no signal abnormality. There are no abnormal areas of contrast

enhancement. The major vascular flow voids are present. The visualized

paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are clear. The surrounding soft tissues

and osseous structures are unremarkable.

 IMPRESSION:

 NO EVIDENCE OF ACUTE INFARCTION, INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGE, ABNORMAL ENHANCEMENT,

MASS LESION OR HYDROCEPHALUS.

 APPROXIMATELY 5 MM NONENHANCING CYSTIC STRUCTURE IN THE RIGHT FRONTAL

PERIVENTRICULAR WHITE MATTER MOST LIKELY REPRESENTING AN ENLARGED PERIVASCULAR

SPACE OR NEURAL GLIAL CYST.

    What this all means is that there is nothing acute going on, but there is likely a cyst  or an enlarged space around a blood vessel in the right front side of the brain. Right Frontal is an anatomical position, the term "perivascular" means "surounding a blood vessel" and a cyst is a "fluid filled lesion". cysts are typically benign (meaning not cancer.)
