Spine Tumors

Spine Tumors

A spinal tumor is an abnormal growth in the spine. The tumor may occur in the bones of the spine, nerve tissue, or soft tissue around the spine.

Tumors in the spine can press on nerves and blood supply causing a variety of symptoms. The tumors may be:

  • Benign—noncancerous tumor that does not invade nearby tissue
  • Malignant—cancer that invades nearby tissue and can spread to other parts of the body

Dr. Brent Kimball discusses signs, symptoms and treatment for spinal cancer and spinal tumors.
