The Spinal Cord Tumour Forum is a support group for people who have a benign spinal cord tumour or are living with its effect after surgery. This support group was created by and is run by spinal cord tumour sufferers.
These tumours can cause huge problems even if they are benign as they can damage nerves and disturb the functions of different parts of the body. These effects can sometimes be long term even if surgery to remove the tumour has been successful.
Tumours which grow in the spinal cord are rare. For many users of this website this will be their first contact with another sufferer and we would like to give them this opportunity to reach others and to share their experiences and gain access to useful information.
