Default New Dx of brain lesion

Good morning- Our 11 year old was dx.via MRI with a temporal lobe mass- all indications are that it is benign and small. He had an MRI at 2 years old which showed no mass. We meet with neurosurgeon tomorrow. Unsure what to expect as this isn't something thas has been there since birth. His eyes are bilaterraly "drifting" down and to the left and he is unaware of this. EEG was normal and the neurologist says it's a tic. He has NEVER had a tic nor does this looklike a tic. He is completely unaware that it is happening and it is not accompanied by blinking or anything else.
Any thoughts anyone?

It is one of the huge problems that develop in the patient with various sclerosis is brain lesions. These lesions in therapeutic terms are better known as plaques and are inflamed patches within the brain. In this areas the myelin has been stripped far from the nerve cells or neurons causing them to malfunction. The problem here is that these lesions are often spread throughout what is known as the white matter layer of the brain in the rest of the patient's body.
