Arthritic Mass on spinal cord

My mom just had surgery for what she thought was a fracture in her back, when they went in to do the surgery, The doc. found that what they were seeing in the x-rays, MRI's, and CAT scans was not a bone chip - but rather an "arthritic mass" growing on her spine. My mom is only 46yrs old. The Doc. doesnt know why she would have this at her age and said there is a 15-20%chance of it returning. She is now obviously pretty scared. If any one has any useful info on this I would really appreciate it!
Thank you and God Bless, Jessi
