Need more info: This is a question that will be better answered with further clarification of spine imaging details - where exactly is this mass at T9 - inside the spinal cord, inside the vertebral column, on top of the spinal cord, is it enhancing with contrast etc etc. Some masses are clinically benign like hemangiomas inside the vertebra, some are less benign causing symptoms like spine tumors, hematomas, AVMs
