Spinal tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. 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 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 the biopsy to rule out any possibility of malignancy or cancer.
Spinal tumour surgery is performed using minimally invasive or endoscopic technique which requires lesser stay in the hospital and faster recovery. Post surgery some patients may have to be kept in the ICU for some time. These are the patients who have issues with the lungs and may require ventilator support for breathing. It is very common to need a cervical collar or other brace after spinal tumour surgery. The brace keeps you from putting stress on the healing muscles and bones. It will allow you to start getting out of bed about a day after spinal tumour surgery. If needed, physical and occupational therapists will also be able to work with you. If the tumour turns out to be malignant on biopsy then regular followup with your neurosurgeon is a must. Followup MRI scans might be needed to observe any kind of recurrence of the tumour.
