Can lesions disappear?

My neurologist said lesions never disappear. She said neither brain or spinal cord lesions ever go away-she said they are permanent no matter what. BUT Ithere were cervical lesions (active) on my MRI 20 years ago but there were no cervical lesions on my recent MRI but I did have brain and thoracic lesions. So has anyone had any lesions disappear???
