Neurogurgeon or orthopedic for cervical spine problems?

Either

A well trained surgeon of either specialty will do you just fine. The key is finding that surgeon. Asking your physician, as well as friends, family and acquaintances are good stating points in this research. Neurosurgery involves an average of seven years of training in surgery of the brain, spinal column, spinal nerves and spinal cord.

"what is a cervical spine neuroma, what causes it? and how is it treated?"

Benign nerve growth

Neuroma
A Neuroma is a benign tumor or overgrowth of nerve cells which may grow from the nerve or be due to a focal injury. Neuromas can occur anywhere a nerve is. A cervical spine neuroma arises from nerves exiting the spine in the neck region. Many are small, and cause no problem. Larger ones or ones affecting muscle and pain function need evaluation. Your neurologist can help.

What are the symptoms for cervical spine stenosis?

Nerve pain

Neck_pain
Stenosis refers to crowding and/or impingement of the nerves or spinal cord - therefore the most common symptoms would be nerve type symptoms in the arms, such as numbness, tingling, weakness, pain. Having said that, it's very uncommon for an 18 year old to have cervical stenosis.

Is cervical radiculopathy in my cervical spine from disc protrusion?

Maybe

Cervical_spine
Cervical radiculopathy can arise from various causes that pinch a nerve in the neck. A disk herniation is a common cause. Other causes include bone spurs that form over time that narrow the hole through which the nerves exit the spine.
