    I had an MRI of my thoracic spine and have disc protrusions at t6-8. On T7 there is an egg shaped white spot sitting on the spinal cord with a black area framed around the top of it. I am seeing a neurosurgeon Monday and wondered if I need to ask about this or be concerned?

    White spots on the cord generally are notations of a prior injury and scarring (gliosis) or a tumor within the cord.
