Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you needed a cervical spine MRI.

"White" area on a cervical spine MRI indicates bone or arthritis from bone spicules (extra bone growth that can pinch nerve root.

Can you attach the report?

May I assume your pain has increased? Are you taking any medications? Any numbness in either arm?

Any additional thoughts, questions?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you

Did you get photos?

yes looking now

I reviewed your films and do not see any obvious fractures. I do see evidence of arthritis which is most likely the cause of your neck pain. Have you discussed this study with your doctor?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Have not discussed report yet. He comes in on Monday. It's just that the neck pain goes to my head and ear. Dont know why this happened in the last few months

This would be normal for arthritis in the neck to make your head and ear have pain because all of the muscles in this area are attached to each other. So any movement of your neck can cause pain. May I suggest you take Advil or Aleve for the pain until you see your doctor.
