Could you tell your age? MRI that showed hypercellular bone marrow is mostly a factor of age. In general, in adults, hypercellularity is due to anemia causing increased stress on bone marow (hemolytic). But in a child of 10 years it is considered normal.
Mild disc bulges are commonly seen above 50 years and NEEDS NO WORRY, as you don't seem to have either compression or foramenal stenosis.
hope i am clear.
