Spinal Tumors

Spinal tumors are growths that develop on the bones and ligaments of the spine, on the spinal cord, or on nerve roots. These tumors can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant).

Malignant tumors rarely start in the spine. They are usually tumors that have spread from other parts of the body, particularly the breast, prostate gland, thyroid gland, or kidney.
