Can i please know of my brain mri is normal please

As well as what he mean by Incidental mega cisterna magna? Should i be worried ?
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 15 days ago.

Thanks for the report. It's completely normal. the mega cisterna just refers to you having slightly larger ventricles in the brain. These are the gaps we have in the brain where brain and spinal fluid flows. It is just the way you're made and 100% normal. It's a bit like some people have slightly larger ears than others, it's noted but has no consequence, doesn't get worse and doesn't lead to symptoms. I would reassure you in the strongest way possible that it's honestly nothing to worry about. I hope that helps.

Is there any advice why i have headache could it be my ears
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 15 days ago.

Potentially it could be. It's worth having an ear and importantly an up to date eye test to try and see if they have any impact. I'm definitely reassured by your scan result though. You're very welcome, glad I could help. All the very best for the future.
