Brain & Spinal Cord Cancers

Brain & Spinal Cord Cancers

Early diagnosis can be an important factor in the outcome of tumors in the brain and the spinal cord. Primary spinal cord tumors - tumors that originate in the spine rather than spread to the spine from elsewhere in the body - are usually benign. They are so rare that they account for only a half of one percent of all newly diagnosed tumors. Malignant primary tumors of the spinal cord are even less common.

Most spinal cord cancers are metastatic or secondary cancers, meaning they arise from cancers that have spread to the spinal cord. Cancers that may spread to the spine include lung, breast, prostate, head and neck, gynecologic,gastrointestinal, thyroid, melanoma, renal cell carcinoma and others.
