Yes: Many times we do not know there is spinal cord compression until the patient presents with some complaint of pain or weakness.

What is the difference between spinal cord compression & spinal stenosis? Can you have one without the either?
Spinal stenosis is: An abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal, usually due to degenerative arthritic. Since the cord runs through the canal, spinal stenosis can cause compression of the cord.

You don't need stenosis to have compression ...Read more
