Question mri results i dont know what its saying

hi, this is like a second language to me, i do not see the specialist until may 9th and im going crazy, and feel horrible can someone give me an idea of what its saying please...... there is two reports.... the first is

There is mild reversal of the normal cervical lordosis centered at the c5-6 level. No evidence of fracture. there is a mild marrow hterogeneity within the dens which demostrates increased T1 signal intensity and most likely incidicates a hemangioma, and there is no evidence of edema on the STIR images, mild disc desiccation and disc height loss at C5-6
there are slightly low-lying cerebellar tonsils,without evidence of tonsillar ectopia. 3mm left paracentral foraminal protusion with an associated annual fussure, mild narrowing of the central canal in the midline.and mild to moderate narrowing of the left anterolateral recess with mild flattening of the left anterior aspect of the cord, mild to moderate foraminal narrowing on the left with mild encroachment on the exiting nerve root.

if anyone can help i would really appreciate it.... this is the first test.....

Re: mri results i dont know what its saying

Welcome to the forums. The categories can be a little confusing. You will find that most of the members with cervical (neck) issues post on another board called "Spinal Cord Disorders" that you will find by scrolling further down the page where it lists all the various boards and health issues. I would suggest you ask your question there as you will get more responses.
