Spine Tumor Removal

What is Spinal tumor

Development of unwanted cells in or around the spinal cord is called spinal tumor. These tumours may be of either benign nature i.e. non-cancerous or they may be of malignant nature i.e. cancerous. Spinal tumors can arise in primarily 3 places: inside the cord or in the membranes (meninges) covering the spinal cord or between the meninges and bones of the spine. The blood vessels, bones of the spine, nerve roots or spinal cord cells may also be affected by these tumors, if they extend to them. Biopsy or a MRI or CT scan can help determine the presence of spinal tumours. Based on cancerous or non-cancerous behavior following are different types of Spinal tumours.
  • Benign bone tumors are of following types:
    • Giant Cell Tumor: found usually in the sacrum
    • Hemangioma: found usually in the thoracic spine
    • Osteoid Osteoma: found usually to affect the lumbar spine's posterior spinal column
    • Osteoblastoma: found usually to affect the spine's posterior spinal column
  • Malignant bone tumors are classified as follows:
    • Chordoma: found usually to affect the sacrum and coccyx in the midline
    • Osteosarcoma: found usually to affect the anterior vertebral body and it may also invade the Posterior spinal elements.
  • Malignant cartilage tumor:
    • Chondrosarcoma: the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine areas are primarily affected
  • Malignant plasma cell tumors:
    • Plasmacytoma: the white blood cells (plasma cells) cancer and is known to affect the thoracic spine and may also involve the spinal cord of the nerve roots.
    • Lymphomas: body's lymphatic system cancer that may spread to the spine .Usually affect the anterior part (front) of the spinal column
