Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, some time it is not possible to interpret the whole medical terminology in simple language but of course this can be explained as long as the disease is concern and here form the report I could say that this is degenerative disease of spinal cord, it is being narrowed, from where the cord is going, the disk have been came out of the original place, hope this information helps you, have nice day.
