Spinal cord tumours into three major groups by their location within the spine

  • Extradural tumors – Grow in the membrane surrounding the spinal cord (the dura mater)
  • Intradural-extramedullary – Tumors that grow outside the spinal cord but within the dura mater
  • Intramedullary tumors – Intramedullary tumors grow inside the spinal cord
