Spine Tumors Surgeons, Doctors & Experts
Periodic back pain is a common problem. Most cases of pain are the result of normal exertion and sprains or degenerative changes that appear with age. But sometimes the cause of the pain can be a spinal tumour - a malignant or benign neoplasm that develops in the spinal cord, its membranes or in the bones of the spine.
In most organs, benign tumours do not pose great danger. But with regard to the spinal cord, things can happen differently. A spinal tumour or any kind of neoplasm can affect the nerves, which leads to pain, neurological disorders, and sometimes paralysis. A spinal tumour, malignant or benign, can be life-threatening and cause disability. However, advances in the treatment of spinal tumours offer treatment options not previously available to patients with such a disease.
Depending on the location and type of the tumour, other signs and symptoms may develop, especially during the growth and exposure of cancer to the spinal cord or nerve roots, blood vessels or spinal bones. Spinal tumours progress at different speeds. In general, malignant tumours grow rapidly, while benign tumours can develop slowly.
