Hard to know: This is a good question for your doctor. White spots can be many things, including normal. Are the spots on the bones in your neck, or on the spinal cord? How big are they? Why did you have the neck mri? Ask your doctor for the MRI report and come back to tell us what it says. We will be able to help you more with that information!

Depends: A white spot on MRI could possibly suggest previous history of spinal cord injury or multiple other causes. Cancer and also be a "white spot". It would benefit to understand- was contrast given? What type of MRI sequence demonstrated the "white spot"? Do you have a history of other cancer?
