cervical stenosis and spondylosis

Can you tell me  the differance between cervical spinal stenosis and cervical spondylosis ? My first MRI mentioned multilevel disk degenerative changes and cervical spinal canal stenosis and straight neck ,then I went to a neurosurgen and he said I have a syrinx and bad spondylosis,which I know is another name for osteoarthritis. He didnt explain the differance or if they are related in anyway? I have appointment for another xray and two MRI's with and without contrast .I would greatly appreicate any information anyone can give me, Thank you in advance, Mama
