Hi. I am only 28 y.o. and I found out two years ago that I had a tumor pressing against my lower spine and it had been growing since I was 19 y.o. Being so young, they didn't know what to look for and diagnosed me with arthritis. But two years ago, I had surgery to remove a 7 year tumor and it was alright. I had a temporary colostomy bag for a month or so, but it's worth it.
