About Spinal Tumor

Tumors that grow on or near the bones of the spine or around the spinal cord can disrupt the line of communication between the spinal cord and the brain. Spinal tumors can originate in the spine, or spread to the spine from another part of the body. A spinal tumor can cause different kinds of symptoms, depending on where it is located and what type of tumor it is. Generally, spinal tumor symptoms can include:

  • Back pain
  • Strange feeling, either of coldness or numbness, in the legs or hands
  • Incontinence
  • Muscle discomfort, including weakness and cramping
