See your primary doc: It would be difficult to verify a " spinal tumor", purely on symptoms. If you have neurological symptoms of loss of strength or sensation, it is important that you urgently see an md for further evaluation. Imaging including MRI may be required. If there is suspicion of a mass, biopsy may be required. Primary spinal tumors are rare. If there is a tumor, the origin of the tumor would be questioned.
