Lumbar meningioma

I had an MRI done on my back for pain. I have the results and need to get some insite as to what it means.
Findings: There is degenerative narrowing of the L5-S1 interspace with degenerative endplate change. Focal meningioma present at L2 no signifinance. Lumbar vertebral bodies and disc spaces are otherwise normal in height and signal intensity. Diffuse central buldge of the disc are present at L5-S1 without definite protrusion. Remaining disc are normal. Lumbar subarachnoid space and paraspinal soft tissue are normal.
Opinion:
1. Degenerative changes at L5-S1 with associated disc buldge without protrusion.
2. Otherwise negative.
