Brief Answer:
May need surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your MRI spine findings.

I do not have the detailed MRI report and also the symptoms.

However, if the patient had weakness of both legs, then, surgery may be needed to remove the mass lesion from the spinal cord.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
