Hi,
How you feeling and what are are your symptoms?
If you think you have Cervical Disc herniation then Cervical disc herniation is a condition in which retropulsion of disc material occurs, with resulting compression of the neural elements (nerve root[s] and/or spinal cord), resulting in neck pain, radiculopathy, and/or myelopathy.
Disc protrusion consists of the deformity of the fibrous ring by the impact against it of the gelatinous material from the nucleus pulpous.
Disc protrusion is an earlier stage of Disc Herniation.
Can you tell us with what regards are you asking us?
Keep me informed if you have any queries.
Bye.
