Metastatic spinal tumours are tumour deposits on the spine which are separate from the primary tumour. They are caused by primary cancers, particularly those such as lung, breast and prostate cancer, and can occur at any point as the disease progresses.
Metastatic spinal tumours are usually due to primary cancers elsewhere in the body.
Symptoms of metastatic spinal tumours include:
- Back pain
- Pain in the chest or legs
- Weakness in the arms and legs
