This patient hospitalized at local hospital several times. After receiving medication, his symptoms had worsened. MRI examination shows the symptom was caused by the tumor compressing the nerve root. After surgical treatment, the patient's pain symptoms had improved significantly. The patient discharged 5 days after surgery. The patient has been living normally so far.
