Spinal Schwannomas Symptoms

Because these symptoms can appear with or like other conditions, it is important to be seen by a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. If left untreated, even non-cancerous tumors can grow and cause severe nerve and spine damage, and sometimes paralysis. (See Diagnosing and Treating Spinal Schwannomas.)

Symptoms

As the tumor grows, it will affect different parts of the spine, nerves, blood vessels and bones. As this growth occurs, symptoms will vary, including:

  • Back pain
  • Weakness or numbness in the arms and legs
  • Electric-like shock sensations when the affected area is touched
  • Loss of bladder or bowel function
  • Paralysis
