Spine tumor fundamentals
Spine tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found inside the spinal column. Tumors that originate in the spine are called primary tumors and are rare. They can either be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
The majority of tumors results from uncontrolled growth among cells that reside in the spinal column while some tumors are related to a specific disease or to radiation exposure. However, the cause behind most spine tumors is unknown and they are neither contagious nor preventable.
A secondary or metastatic tumor results from spine cancer originating in another part of the body. This is a malignant tumor and is classified by its location in the spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar or sacrum). The types of cancer that most frequently lead to a spine tumor include:
The most common symptom of a spine tumor is back pain that is not improved by rest. Other symptoms include:

What are my treatment options for spine tumors?
Pain and swelling can be managed through the use of analgesics and steroids. Your doctor may recommend you wear a brace to increase spinal stability and minimize pain.
Depending on the type of spine tumor, the tumor’s location, and your medical condition, treatments may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or surgical removal of the tumor. If surgical removal is not possible due to the tumor’s location, your doctor may perform embolization, which limits blood flow to the tumor.
If surgery is required, your doctor may remove all or only part of the spine tumor. Surgery is typically recommended when:
Other treatments have failed to relieve pain.
Spine stabilization is necessary.
Some spinal vertebrae have destructed.
A biopsy is needed.
Nerves are compressed.
Surgery involves the partial or total removal of the spine tumor. Spinal fusion may be used to reconstruct and stabilize the spine. This procedure involves joining the bones together with screws or bone grafts to provide stability.
