Okay, I'm not a doctor, and I'm not 100% on this, but as I understand it; cervical meningocele is related to, or is a type of, Spina Bifida. Basically an incompletely closed section of the spinal cord.

It's congenital...meaning you were borne with it. I would guess that it's a rather small issue, else it would have been noticable at birth. So, they may have just noticed it during the surgery or MRI's.

I believe other people on these forums are more familiar with Spina Bifida, so maybe someone can give you more details or correct me if I'm wrong.
