Osteophyte

As per Mri report, osteophyte is present at c6 but doctor or physiotherapist have not yet confirmed it. Is it that presence of osteophyte confirms cervical spondylosis? as the impression in report says cervical spondylosis. I have nerve pinch , inflammation in palms, arms, severe left shoulder pain.
