Doctors usually diagnose people who have NF1 by examining discolorations or benign tumors on their skin. Some people who have NF1 may develop other conditions, such as curvature of the spine, another bone deformity or an eye nerve tumor (optic glioma). Patients with NF1 are at risk of developing a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor. Primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors begin in the brain or spinal cord. Ab people are diagnosed a year with a primary CNS tumor and ab are malignant. View Cancer Stat Facts: Brain and Other Nervous System Cancer to see the number of new cases, lifetime risk, and people.

Benign spinal cord tumors (SCTs) are uncommon neoplasms that can arise within or adjacent to the spinal cord. Depending on their anatomical location, benign SCTs can be categorized as intramedullary, intradural-extramedullary, and extradural.
The three most common benign SCTs are meningioma, nerve sheath tumors, and ependymoma. Both meningioma and nerve sheath tumors Author: Xiaoming Qi, Frank Y.

Spinal cancer, or more commonly known as spinal tumor, is a neoplasm (an abnormal growth) in the spinal tumors may be primary which start in the spinal cord or secondary which result from metastasis (transmission of cancerous cells) from other cancers in the body.
The vast majority (90%) of spinal cord neoplasms are glial tumors, and most of them are malignant. The rarity of these lesions is also demonstrated by the fact that of all CNS glial tumors, only 2–4% are located in the spinal cord. Finally, 35% of all intraspinal tumors are intrinsic spinal.
Spinal tumor pain may feel like one or more of the following: Upper or middle back pain. While most spinal pain is located in the lower back or neck, pain from a spinal tumor is more likely to be felt in the upper or middle back.

Tumors can grow. Metastatic spinal tumors, which have spread to the spine from another location in the body, such as the prostate or kidneys, often progress quickly.
The most noticeable sign of spinal cancer is pain. Pain may come from the tumor's presence in the spinal column, pushing on sensitive nerve endings or causing spinal instability. Surgery Some spinal tumors, benign or malignant, require surgical intervention before or after non-operative treatments.
When pain is unresponsive to non-operative treatment, neurologic deficit progresses, a specimen is needed, neural elements (e.g. nerves) are compressed, vertebral destruction exists, or when spinal stabilization is necessary - surgery is considered. Spinal tumors and brain tumors are closely related and generally referred to as brain and spinal cord tumors or tumors of the central nervous system.
The spinal cord is located just below the brain stem and contains long nerve fibers with signals that control muscles, feeling, and the bladder and bowel.

Tumors that spread to the spine from some other place (metastasize) are called secondary spinal tumors. Tumors may spread to the spine from the breast, prostate, lung, and other areas.All primary malignant spinal tumors have poor overall survival rates, meaning most patients will eventually succumb to the disease.
However, short-term survival correlates with tumor type (Table ).The one exception is solitary plasmacytoma, which has a .Like all surgeries, spinal cancer surgery is most successful when performed by a specialist with a great deal of experience in the particular procedure.
