A young man in Phu-Tho was experiencing leg pain but opted not to see a doctor. Two weeks later, his condition worsened, leading to paralysis of both legs and a loss of feeling and movement.

Dr. Vi Truong Son, the Head of the Surgery Department at Phu Tho General Hospital, shared that an MRI scan revealed an epidural tumor pressing on the patient’s spinal cord, resulting in paralysis. The surgery was performed to remove the tumor and decompress the spinal cord, with no lasting effects for the patient. The tumor was identified as a benign schwannoma.

After surgery, the patient’s legs began to regain feeling and movement. With a combination of rehabilitation exercises and physical therapy, he is expected to recover the ability to walk normally soon.

Spinal cord tumors are typically benign but can grow and compress the spinal cord and nerves if not addressed promptly. It is crucial to seek medical attention when experiencing symptoms such as back pain, limb weakness or numbness in the limbs to prevent serious consequences. Timely examination and treatment are essential in managing conditions like these.
