Could cervical spine MRI show neck cancer?

Could. Cervical spine MRI will show spine more. Mri neck will show more soft tissues in neck and not concentrate on spine.
It can. Yes. The field of view (fov) of a spine image is often not complete so if one suspects this, a better MRI and perhaps a ct or pet/ct is general used. However, before additional imaging is done, a good physical exam by a head and neck surgeon who works with neck cancer is absolutely a good idea.
