Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It depends of what kind of lesion is there. If it is a slipped disc, it is usually rare in this age. It can occur due to bad posture, degenerative arthritis, trauma also. If the disc matter comes out it can compress the nerves of the arm, forearm and hand causing pain, tingling, numbness, weakness of the affected arm. It would need surgery to fix this if it causes any nerve compression.
