This is a bit complicated, but seems like the radiologist is suggesting a possible syrinx. Go chat with your doctor about this.

Thank you Dr Eric Wang, MD. my doctor is too busy to see me. the head of Radiologist told to not worry about it. i have mild pain in my neck and upper back sometimes but could be from anything. do you think it is fine for me to work out again?
