Etiology of intraspinal tumors

In the majority of cases the reasons for the development of primary intraspinal tumors are not known.

Risk factors

  • Receiving high doses of ionizing radiation is the only risk factor that can definitely be associated with the development of primary intraspinal tumors. 
  • There is no certain connection between primary intraspinal tumors and risk factors such as tobacco, alcohol and electromagnetic radiation (cell phones/microwave ovens), for example.
