Thank you for posting your query.

Most likely, there is a benign tumor, causing compression over the spinal cord. As the doctors have suggested, surgery is required to remove it. Otherwise, it may lead to weakness of legs.

Surgery is expensive and the costs range from 1-2 lakh rupees. If you get it done at a government hospital such as AIIMS New Delhi or PGIMER Chandigarh, then the cost would be on the lower side. If done at a private hospital, it would be on the higher side.

Best wishes,
