A spinal tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue that grows in or around the spinal cord or the spinal column. This tissue is made up of cells that are growing abnormally and in an uncontrolled way. Lumbar spinal tumors can cause pain in the lower back, weakness in the legs, changes to bladder or bowel control, and an array of other symptoms accompanying the pain, including nausea, fever, and shakes.
