Opinion on Cervical Spine MRI report

Hello, would appreciate someone's opinion on my MRI report. Sounds scary to me! Sorry for the length of this post
C-1 articulation and foramen magnum are normal.  There is minimal scoliosis.
C2-3 Disc narrowing and anterior spondylosis are present>  There are type I endplate changes.  There is a broad-based, 4 mm herniation compressing the cord and possibly extending into both neural foramen.  Degenerative facet arthropathy may contribute to a part of  the foraminal stenosis on the right.  Normal cord signal is maintained.
C4-5 Disc narrowing and 1 to 2 mm of disc bulge are present.  The degenerative change at the uncovertebral joints has resulted in bilateral foraminal stenosis.
C5-6 1 to 2 mm disc bulge is present.  Degenerative change of the uncovertebral joints has contributed to bilateral foraminal stenosis.
C6-7 1 to 2 mm of disc bulge are present.  Degenerative change of the uncovertebral joints has contributed to bilateral foraminal stenosis.
C7-T1 There is a narrow based, central, 2 to 3 mm herniation without cord impingement.

Impression:
1. Scoliosis
2. Multilevel degenerative disc changes are present as described, with type I endplate changes noted at the C3-4 level.
3. There is  a 4 mm C3-4 herniation compressing the cord with cord contour deformity.  Normal cord signal is maintained.
4. There is a 2 to 3 mm central C7-T1 disc herniation without cord impingement.
5. Foraminal stenosis is noted at the C3-4 through C6-7 level.
6 Upper thoracic spine degenerative changes are noted, with areas of disc bulge or protrusion without cord impingement.
