Spine Tumor

A spinal tumor is an abnormal growth of cells in or surrounding the spinal cord. Spinal tumors can occur inside the spinal cord, in the membranes (meninges) covering the spinal cord and between the meninges and bones of the spine. Most tumors in the spine spread from other part of the body into the spinal region and cause pain and are known as metastatic. In women, spinal tumors most frequently spread from cancer that originates in the breast or lung. In men, it most frequently spread from cancer that originates in the prostate or lung. And the tumors that   occur in the vertebral column, and grow either from the bone or disc elements of the spine. They typically occur in younger adults. Osteogenic sarcoma (osteosarcoma) is the most common malignant bone tumor. Most primary spinal tumors are quite rare and usually grow slowly.
