Spinal tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. Tumors in the spine can be benign or malignant. Malignant tumors in the spine may be Primary (begin in the spine) or Secondary (metastatic – move to the spine from other locations). The most common cancers that move to the spine are breast, lung, renal and prostate. Most often cancer that moves to the spine is not fatal, although it can cause pain and compress nerves. Nerves that are compressed can cause weakness or paralysis of the arms or legs. Best Treatment of spine tumors in India is focused on maintaining quality of life. They generally require surgery for excision of the tumour by a neurosurgeon. The excised spinal tumour is then sent for biopsy to determine the further line of treatment in the form of Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy.
