Spinal tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. Tumors in the spine may be primary (begin in the spine) or secondary (metastatic – move to the spine from other locations). The most common cancers that move to the spine are breast, lung, renal and prostate. Most often cancer that moves to the spine is not fatal, although it can cause pain and compress nerves. Nerves that are compressed can cause weakness or paralysis of the arms or legs. Best Treatment of spine tumors in India is focused on maintaining quality of life. They generally require surgery for excision of the tumour by a neurosurgeon. The excised spinal tumour is then sent for the biopsy to rule out any possibility of malignancy or cancer.
Spinal tumour surgery in India these days is performed using minimally invasive or endoscopic technique which requires lesser number of days in hospital and faster recovery. Some people will spend time in an intensive care unit being operated upon for the spinal tumour in India, including those who need support for breathing from a ventilator or special intravenous (IV) medications for blood pressure. Sometimes an ICU is needed just for overnight observation. It is very common to need a cervical collar or other brace after spinal tumour surgery. The brace keeps you from putting stress on the healing muscles and bones. It will allow you to start getting out of bed about a day after spinal tumour surgery. If needed, physical and occupational therapists will also be able to work with you.
