2 doctors agree

In brief: This means that-

-compared 2 earlier images there has been progression of the prior degenerative changes also since then a small L disk protrusion is present.
As long as there is no leg pain this may just be an incidental finding that goes along with progression. @ Ur young age U need take care of Ur back. NSAIDS, activity modification, & avoid sports that R high impact. Don't put Ur self@ @ fisk.
