Spine Tumour Surgery

The type of tumor must be considered in determining a treatment plan. In primary tumors, the goal is to remove the tumor completely. In the case of metastatic tumors, the goal is palliative.

 

Monitoring

If small tumors aren't growing or pressing on surrounding tissues, monitoring is recommended with periodic CT or MRI scans.

 

Surgery

The treatment of choice for tumors that can be removed. When the tumor can't be removed completely, surgery may be followed by radiation therapy or chemotherapy or both.

  • Radiation therapy- used to treat tumors that remain after surgery, to treat inoperable tumors or to treat those tumors where surgery is too risky.
  • Chemotherapy- uses medications to destroy cancer cells.
