It simply means that you have an extra pair of ribs low down in your neck. If you are symptomatic, do not worry, it is just another thing that is unique to you. However, if you are experiencing weakness or numbness in you upper limbs or have unexplained shooting pain near your elbow or arm or forearm then you need to meet a good Spine Surgeon(use this app to locate one with good patient feedbacks) to operate upon you to remove that portion of this rib which is compressing upon this particular bundle of nerves causing the problem.
