MRI of cervical spine showed multiplanar multi sequences. Should I be concerned for cancer?

I had a second MRI on my cervical spine and it says multiplanar multi sequences found, what does that mean. I am already waiting for surgery but am wondering if this means a more in depth surgery or is it something more I need to be concerned about like cancer tumor instead of a calcified buldge that the last MRI showed back in august.

Hi there, please read the report again and see the conclusion. Multiplanar mean multi planes of acquisition and multi sequence is meaning that they did multiple sessions of their tests (which is done in each and every MRI, not only yours). So this is just technical jargon and hence no need to get alarmed. Take care
