About 10,000 Americans develop primary or metastatic spinal tumors every year. Although spinal tumors can affect anyone, they are most common in young and middle-aged adults.
Spine tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. Once your spinal tumor symptoms are diagnosed, you will work with your doctor and treatment team to learn more about your treatment options. Your treatment will depend on how aggressive your tumors are and where in your spine they are located.
