Not cancerous : Yes haemangiomas would show on CT scan and their appearance would also be affected by whether they are calcified or not

Vertebral hemangioma: In all my years of practice, I have never seen a vertebral bone hemangioma be anything but benign, so you should not worry. They DO show up as sclerotic lesions within the bone, but should not be confused with degenerative changes at the endplate (there can be overlap). An MRI is best to sort this out.
