Spinal Tumors and Infections

Infection and tumor surgery helps alleviate fatal risks, saves lives and allows patients to go back to their normal lives quickly.

Tumors or infections on the spine may occur on any bone, nerve or soft tissue of the spine. Tumors generally develop in two different ways. The first is tumors developing from the cells constituting the structure of the spine and the spinal cord, and the other is through the metastasis of tumors in other regions of the body.

Symptoms:

The common and first symptom is pain.. In patients with known cancer or infection risks (diabetes, organ transplants, etc., spinal pain must absolutely be taken seriously and investigated. If the pain is prolonged in patients who have no other issues (pain lasting for more than 3 weeks and increasing) tumors or infections are investigated.

Another symptom that needs to be taken seriously is partial or complete paralysis.
