It is a growth of cells in or surrounding the spinal cord. It can occur inside the spinal cord (intramedullary), in the membrane covering the spinal cord, between the meninges and bones of the spine. The symptoms are loss of sensation especially in the legs, loss of muscle function, cold sensation of the legs, and muscle weakness. There are three common types of spinal tumors that can cause back pain: vertebral column tumors, intradural-extramedullary tumors, and intramedullary tumors. Most tumors in the spine are metastatic—they spread from another part of the body into the spinal region and cause pain. Tumors in the spinal cord usually cause symptoms, sometimes over large portions of the body. Tumors outside the spinal cord may grow for a long time before causing nerve damage.
