Spinal Cancer

Spinal Cancer

Cancer Treatment Method

Spinal tumors are neoplasms located in either the vertebral column or the spinal cord. There are three main types of spinal tumors. The most common presenting symptom of spinal tumors is nocturnal back pain. Other common symptoms include muscle weakness, sensory loss, and difficulty walking. Loss of bowel and bladder control may occur during the later stages of the disease.

We do not know what causes spinal tumors. Most extradural tumors are metastatic commonly from breast, prostate, lung, and kidney cancer.

Diagnosis involves a complete medical evaluation followed by imaging with a CT or MRI. A biopsy may be obtained in certain cases to categorize the lesion if the diagnosis is uncertain.

Cancer is a disease that causes the most serious problems in the world. Chemotherapy's side effects on the patient, both physically and psychologically, is rather harsh. The patient's immune system is weak and therefore, their body doesn't have the ability to heal itself. Here at Advanced Healthcare, our Alternative Treatments involve a multimodal approach which is designed specifically to each patient's needs.
