It’s common for a man to have an abnormal pain in his lower back which doesn’t respond to a particular treatment.
But it’s not always the case.
If you’re concerned about the pain, you might be thinking about the back pain you’re experiencing, or even the pain that’s affecting you.
“A lot of people think that it’s the back, but it’s actually the spinal cord that’s the problem,” says Dr John McGlone from the Royal Perth Hospital.
Dr McGlonigh is one of a number of specialist paediatricians who have been studying spinal cancer.
He says the pain you feel when you have a problem in your back is probably not the spinal problem, but the underlying cause of that pain.
He says it’s important to be aware of the underlying causes of the pain.
“I’d recommend that you be aware that pain in the back can be due to an underlying cause, not just an unusual symptom,” he says.
The best thing you can do for yourself to avoid developing spinal cancer is to be physically active, says Dr McGlones.
