In brief: Unknown
We do not know why some folks get spinal tumors, although some could be secondary to tumor spread from elsewhere, such as lung cancers, maybe associated with smoking.
Genetics may play a role. Ms susceptibility can be associated with genetics and environmental influences, but the final cause remains unclear.
