Cells gone wild: In its' simplest form, a cancer is a line of cells that grow out of the normal control system of the human body. Cells develop and die on a regular basis daily within the human body.

I have degenrative spine l345 s1 i can't move at the end of the day, i'm 40 the pain is there every min of the day! would a fusion help?
Unlikely: Fusion for spine arthritis results are highly unpredictable. Spine degeneration is ubiquitous beyond the middle ages and there is no way to reliably determine in whom it is wholly responsible for lbp. There are countless other potential causes, contributing factors, and treatments.

Disk injury: Technically is not not a tear of the vertebra (a bone), but the disk between two bones. The outer disk (annulus fibrosis) is made of layers of collagen (a material). Think of them as threads woven in layers. They allow for some flexibility and movement between the bones. With aging and time some of the fibers can tear. If nerve fibers grow into the area, it might be a source of pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nothing can be done?: You have an answer. To get a different answer will require asking somebody else. Having had prior spinal fusion may be a significant consideration in your case.
