Wat does " u have 5 spots on ur spine that r bulging out " mean? should I b worried? I askd but all he said was I'm fine
Not much information: I presume these were disc bulges noted on a lumbar or cervical MRI. It's not uncommon for disc bulges to be noted on MRI studies.

I imagine the neurologist may want to see unusual growth of head circumference prior to referring to a pediatric neurosurgeon for shunt placement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
9-hour flight. Ankle was noticeably swollen. Looks much better after 2 days. Now thigh has bulging spot. Mild aching. No redness or warmth. Doctor?
