Brain & Spine Cancer


Brain Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 22,910 malignant (cancerous) tumors of the brain or spinal cord are diagnosed annually.
Brain tumors are masses of abnormal cells that grow out of control. Although brain tumors rarely spread to other parts of the body, they may spread through the brain tissue. Even benign (non-cancerous) tumors can, as they grow, destroy and compress normal brain tissue, causing damage that is often disabling and sometimes fatal. For this reason, doctors usually speak of "brain tumors" rather than "brain cancers." The main concerns with brain tumors are how readily they spread through the rest of the brain or spinal cord and whether they can be permanently removed and not come back.
There are two main types of brain cancer. Primary brain cancer starts in the brain. Metastatic brain cancer starts somewhere else in the body and moves to the brain. Brain tumors can be benign, with no cancer cells, or malignant, with cancer cells that grow quickly.

Spine Cancer
A spinal tumor is a cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign) growth that develops within or near your spinal cord or within the bones of your spine. A spinal tumor or a growth of any kind can affect nerves in the area of the tumor, leading to pain, neurological problems and sometimes paralysis. Whether cancerous or not, a spinal tumor can threaten life and cause permanent disability.
Brain and spinal cord tumors are different in adults and children. They often form in different areas, develop from different cell types, and may have a different outlook and treatment.
