Recent cspine MRI reported 2 cysts / no significance. Past history spontaneous skin lesions presented here. What other possibilities report "cysts" ?

More detail needed: C-spine cysts come in many varieties. Perineural cysts are usually asymptomatic. Facet joint & synovial cysts usually indicate degenerative changes and can be symptomatic especially when they are large and in the vertebral canal causing compression of neural structures. Spinal cord "cysts" or fluid collections are often problematic & require further evaluation. Bone cystic lesions r also possible. ...Read more
