Metastatic spinal cord compression

Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression (MSCC) happens as a result of cancer spreading into or near the spine, which can then cause pressure onto the spinal cord. We are proud to have launched our MSCC Service, which aims to be a high quality service following the latest guidelines in the treatment of Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression.

The information is here as a guide for patients and professionals and will provide useful links to relevant information.

The MSCC Patient Information provides information on what you can expect when you are seen at the RNOH. We have outlined the pathway for you.

The MSCC Professional Information includes information on; ‘PATHPOINT’, an electronic referral and pathway management system, for all Consultant-led referrals from secondary and tertiary care organisations..
