Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Spinal Tumors
Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications
Understanding Spinal Tumors
Between 30-70% of cancer patients experience metastatic spinal tumors
There are two general types of spinal tumors: primary tumors and secondary (metastatic) tumors.
Primary spinal tumors originate in the spinal column, such as by growing in the bones, discs, nerves, or other elements within the spine. Primary spinal tumors are usually benign and occur in younger people.
Secondary spinal tumors, or metastatic spinal tumors, are tumors that have spread to the spine from a cancer that started elsewhere in the body. These malignant tumors are the most common type of spinal tumor, have the potential to spread further, and are typically fast-growing. Cancerous cells from the lung, breast, and prostate are most likely to spread and become lodged in the spine.
