Hi Fortis is a good hospital. Spine tumors have to be biopsied or FNAC for finding if it's benign or malignant. Excision of tumor is done for benign lesion and defect filled with bone graft, fusion of vertebra etc, if malignant then type and nature of tumor, whether more extended surgery or radiotherapy or chemotherapy responsiveness guide treatment guidelines. I may suggest biopsy, fnac before surgery for confirmation of diagnosis first. If patient has no other problems, like prostate, lung, kidneys etc this could be primary bone tumor. Doctors do PET -Ct glucose uptake study or bone scans before surgery to look for other focus of tumors or secondaries, or diagnosing benign or malignant nature.

Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold). Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment knee is applied warm water followed by the immediate application of the knee with ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

Backpain at your age can be due to lot of causes. Mostly long sitting activities can lead to weakness of back and neck muscles resulting in pain. You should do back muscle strengthening exercises and postural adjustment. Hot bag and diclofenac gel are also useful use vitamin d supplements if long standing symptoms are there then you need to be investigated. Get x rays of lumbosacral spine and show.

Hello, I have serious backpain issue and I feel uncomfortable with straight sitting postures.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, I have serious backpain issue and I feel uncomfortable with straight sitting postures.
Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Lie down on bed on your back without pillow. Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.
