Sir ,i am suffering with pain in neck and head.i went thru x-ray for the same.. in report "transverse process of C7 is prominent bilateral" .
My X-ray of the cervical spine showed "bilateral prominent transverse processes of c7" what does that mean and should I be worried about it?
Arm symptoms?: Enlargement of the C7 transverse process can be associated with thoracic outlet syndrome and is a more subtle finding similar to the presence of a true cervical rib. Classic tos symptoms involve the lower trunk of the brachial plexus with numbness and pain extending into the 4th and 5th digits of the hand and hand weakness. ...Read more
My Chest X-ray "there are very small bilateral either C7 cervical rib or mildly prominent transverse processes at C7." What does this mean?
Usually coincidental: But if you have compression over the brachial plexus in the shoulder, causing neurogenic or vascular thoracic outlet syndrome, leading to arm pain, numbness, weakness, then a question of mechanical effect is relevant. Sometimes, surgical excision is the best solution for such an impact. ...Read more

I had a CT scan of cervical spine and discovered there is asymmetry of C6 transverse apophysis and prominent transverse apohysis in c7. Plse explain?
Trying 2 B thoracic: The prominent C7 transverse process is a cervical rib. Usually very small, larger 1s with arm symptoms can cause tos &may require excision. Very poor image. It may b an incidental finding, but if u have ssx of thoracic outlet syndrome (tso)....May b 1 that needs excision. ...Read more

What to do if I have broad based disc bulge C5 C6 C7 effacing CSF on the anterior spinal cord there is bilateral neurofora?
Depends on symptoms: You are describing a radiographic finding. Many times, people have disc bulges and no symptoms, in which case nothing needs to be done. If you are having neck pain or arm pain or numbness/weakness of the arms, then treatment with therapy to reduce the disc bulge and relieve pressure on the nerve roots or medication for the symptoms may be indicated. ...Read more

docs say di?
Numbness: Numbness in the hands may be caused from compression at several areas including the neck and carpal tunnel. A detailed exam with nerve study will help decide where the problem is located. Patients with compression of the nerve at both the carpal tunnel and the neck may benefit from carpal tunnel surgery first as it is most likely the primary cause as a recent article this month demonstrates. ...Read more
