c7-t1 there is a right lateral recess disc protrusion mildly indenting the right ventral cervicothoracic cord. what does this mean?

Disc rupture: This MRI report suggests that your disc between C7 and t1 has ruptured and some disc ' materiel' is pressing on the the front of the spinal cord.I would suggest seeing an orthopedic or neurosurgeon for evaluation fairly soon. Good luck!
