Low grade or slow growing spinal tumours can grow but they do not spread to other parts of the body. However, these tumours can grow to a considerable size, causing damage by putting pressure on the tissue around them in the spine.
High grade or rapidly growing tumours are called malignant. They are cancerous. They do spread and destroy the tissue surrounding them.
The most common spinal tumours are malignant metastases that have spread to the spine from malignant primary tumours in other parts of the body such as the prostate, breasts, lungs, kidneys and bowel.
Procedures Done for them are-
1. Transpedicular Biopsy
3. Decompressive laminectomy ± Tumor excision
4. Piecemeal or enbloc tumour excision and complex spinal reconstruction
