Back pain is the most common symptom of spinal tumors. Pain from spinal tumours in your middle or lower back is usually more common, this is due to those regions of your spine being more susceptible to the development of tumours.
Pain from a spinal tumor is often described as aching and deep, the pain can start slowly and increase in intensity gradually. It seldom respond well to conservative pain relief medications. It can also become especially persistent during night-time, causing sleep disruption for the patient.
Spinal tumors can also cause radicular pain, which is a type of pain that radiates from your spine to your hips, feet or arms. Radicular pain can often be described as a sharp pain.
