Thank you for posting your query.

These MRI findings are suggestive of mild disc prolapse in the neck and upper thoracic regions. These are minor issues and there is no need to worry.

The common symptoms due to this could be pain in the neck and arms.

Treatment includes physiotherapy and neck exercises.

Wishing you good health,
