Spinal Tumors

Abnormal cell growth can cause spinal tumors. In primary spinal tumors (tumors that originate in the spine), it is unclear why the cells grow abnormally. Exposure to radiation or cancer-causing chemicals or environmental factors may be a cause. Genetics may also play a role. Cancer that has spread from another part of the body can cause secondary spinal tumors, or metastatic tumors.
