Does this MRI report indicate any serious problem?

Hi can you tell me if this is serious...there is likely granulation at the level of the occipital bone measuring 0.9cm. No spinal cord signal intensity abnormality. C2-C3 - mild left uncarthrosis. There is also fast changes and hemangioma within left superior articular facet of C3, measuring 6mm. C5-C6 - mild disc volume loss without overlying dic protrusion measuring about 3X11X6mm. There is an associated annular tear. There is indentation of the anterior aspect of the thecal sac and associated mild to moderate central canal stenosis. There is also bilateral uncarthrosis, worse on the right with mild right neuroforaminal stenosis. There is an associated annular tear. C6-C7 - there is mainly right uncarthrosis. C7-T1 - minimal osteoarthritis change on right. Likely fatty changes mainly seen involving the transverse process. Conclusion: Posterior central disc protrusion at C5-C6, it could be potentially in contact with C7 mostly right side and associated mild to moderate canal stenosis. Mild right C5-C6 nerve root. Most probably hemangiomas, largest seen on T2. Considering Previous study of breast carcinoma, a bone scan correlation is recommended. Thank you.

Hello,

Hemangiomas are incidental findings in most of the cases. The rest of the MRI report indicates that there are degenerative spinal changes (spondylosis and disc protrusions). According the report these changes seem to be moderate, not advanced. If any symptoms then conservative treatment is indicated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
