Expert, Team-Based Care for Spinal Tumors

A spinal tumor is a growth of cells in or around the spine that can be cancerous or noncancerous. At Keck Medicine of USC, we use advanced imaging and diagnostic testing to understand the type and location of the tumor. Our spine care team then creates a personalized treatment plan to address all your symptoms.

We may be able to shrink some tumors with a minimally invasive procedure called ablation, chemotherapy and radiation. If your tumor or spine cancer symptoms include numbness, paralysis or signs of neurological damage, we may perform surgery.

Spinal tumors can cause lower back pain, neck pain and neurological damage when they press on your nerves. We help manage lower back pain with bracing, medicine and physical therapy.
