Yes sometimes it so happens that a meningoma may be found incidentally which Imaging brain - which means it is not related to her headaches
. If the meningioma
is small and not causing any mass effects- there is no reason to worry. Perhaps get a follow up MRI
brain in a year to see if it's size is stable. From the information you shared, I concur with her doctor's opinion- her headaches could be migraines, which are the most common headache type or tension type headaches- but that cannot be said with certainty without specific questioning about her headaches. PS- the other MRI finding in putamen also is unrelated to headaches, but without looking at the scan I cannot confirm what it actually means.
