Spine tumour

A vertebral tumour is a type of spinal tumour affecting the vertebrae of the spine. Spinal tumours that begin within the spinal cord or the covering of the spinal cord (dura) are called spinal cord tumours.

Tumours that affect the vertebrae often spread (metastasized) from cancers of other parts of the body. But there are some types of tumours that start within the vertebrae of the spine itself, such as chordoma, chondrosarcoma, osteosarcoma, plasmacytoma and Ewing's sarcoma.

It may cause paralysis by compressing the spinal cord or nerve roots nearby. As these tumours grow, they may also cause pain, fractures or spinal instability. Sometimes it affects the blood vessels of our spine also.

Whether cancerous or not, a vertebral tumour can be life-threatening and cause permanent disability.
