Question?: I am unsure what your specific question is. If these are the findings on a MRI/CT, the finding can be associated with cervical radiculopathy. The symptoms include pain in the lower neck, shoulder, arm, thumb and index finger. Treatments can range for medications, physical therapy, epidural injections to surgery. A spinal orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon can help decide on the best treatment.
