Hi, my name is Eric and I found out a month ago I have a spinal tumor. I've consulted with two neurosurgeons so far. Still trying to find the perfect surgeon to preform the surgery. I'm seeing another neurosurgeon in a few days. It is a heterogenously enhancing cystic and sold mass centered within the central canal of the sacrum at S1 level. The mass extends from the s1-s2 disc level to mid L5. It measures up to 3.6cm (CC) x 2.3 cm (TR) x 1.9 cm (AP). It occupies the entire central canal. Has anyone else had experience with a lesion in a similar location, with subsequent surgery? Everyone is saying it's a benign ependymoma.
