What are Spine Tumors?

Spine tumors push on the nerve tissue causing a range of symptoms from minor aches and discomfort to debilitating pain. The spine is designed very efficiently when it comes to amount of space it uses to accomplish its job. The spinal cord and the thousands of nerves that attach to it fit tightly in the spaces between the bones which make up the spine. So when there is unexpected cell growth in the area because of tumors, it can be very disruptive.
