Tumors have several types that can build up in or near the spine. There are many types of spinal tumors. They can appoint the spinal cord, nerve roots or the vertebrae (bones of the spine) and pelvis. Spinal tumors have two classes. A spinal tumor can be primary, meaning it comes from cells within or near the spine. Primary tumors of the spine are uncommon. More commonly a spinal tumor that is found is a secondary spinal tumor. This means that the tumor traveled there from someplace else in the body. Tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Arise from the arachnid “cap” cell of arachnid villi. Meningiomas are slow growing usually present next to dura matter and the 2nd most common tumors of CNS and primary in nature. They increased intracranial pressure when it enters sometimes in the skull.
