[ANON POST] Spinal Surgery

Hi there.

So my question is about medical intervention. My story is set in modern-day US.

Basically my character has to go through spinal surgery for something that is not a big deal, the only risk lies in the surgery itself since it could leave him in a wheelchair. So I was thinking mild tumor but I don't know if such a thing exists.

I've googled things like "spinal surgery" "mild tumor" "spinal tumor", but the wikipedia article on spinal tumor gave me the impression that either it's mild and it's a mole or it's malignant.

If a malignant spinal tumor could be dealt with just one surgery that would work too, I just can't put him through the whole cancer treatment process with chemo etc.

Thanks for your answers!
