MRI test results
I recently had an MRI of my lumbar spine because of right sided leg pain that is keeping me awake.

There is degeneration seen at most levels and disc bulging but what I don't understand is this statement on the report if someone could translate.

"Moderate central disc herniation at the L2-3 level that has significantly increased in size since the prior examination producing compression of the thecal sac and bilateral foraminal way more pronounced on the right"

Also - Numerous parapelvic renal cysts are seen bilaterally.

What does thecal sac compression mean? Is it serious?

Are the renal cysts something to be concerned about??  I am a 58 yo female, non smoker, diabetic.  My dr. told me to see a neurosurgeon which I will see soon.

Thanks
