MRI Question

So while i havent gotten my MRI results back yet, I do have the disk and went ahead to look at them and have a question.

Im 8 months C6/7 ACDF post op - now right above it at the C5/6 disc appears herniated, its pushing into the while portion (fluid) and into the cord.

the real question i have is on the posterior section of my neck, directly across from c6/7, the back part of the spine ( i dont know what that parts called) the bone is actually pushing forward, all the way through the white parts and into my spinal cord. For months ive had this large swelling on the back of my neck right where my neck meets torso, could that bone pushing into my spinal column cause swelling?
