Can someone interpret my MRI results?

FINDINGS: On the sagittal images there is reversal of the normal cervical
lordosis.

The discs at C2-C3 and C3-C4 are normal.

C4-C5 there is a small focal disc protrusion which is centrally located
compromising the ventral subarachnoid space. The cord is not compressed.
This is best shown on series 7 image 13.

C5-C6: There is a focal disc protrusion lateralized towards the right side.
An extruded discogenic fragment is also noted at this level lateralized
towards the right side. There are also associated degenerative hypertrophic
bone spurs in the vertebral bodies. The above disc and bone abnormalities
slightly compress the ventral aspect of the cord and compromise markedly the
right lateral recess of the spinal canal. The above findings are best shown
on series 3 image 06-07 and on series 7 image 17 - 20.

C6-C7: A broad-based focal disc protrusion is noted at this level. This is
lateralized towards the right side. The protruding disc compromises
prominently the right lateral recess of the spinal canal. This is best shown
on series 7 image 21 - 22.

The 3 upper thoracic discs are included in this examination and show no
abnormalities.

No focal lesions are noted within the cord parenchyma.

IMPRESSION:
1. A prominent focal disc protrusions are noted at C5-C6 and C6-C7. They
represent disc herniations which are lateralized towards the right side
compromising prominently the right lateral recess of the spinal canal. An
extruded discogenic fragment is also noted at C5-C6 which is lateralized
towards the right side compromising further the right lateral recess of the
spinal canal.
2. A smaller focal disc protrusion is noted at C4-C5. This is centrally
located compromising the ventral subarachnoid space.
