What to do if I have a small vertebral boy hemangioma showing high signal intensity in t1&t2wis what's that?

Discuss it with the doctor who ordered the MRI to determine a plan. ...Read more

You have compensated, but have mild tremor as an effect. Surgery may throw off this compensation. If there is pressure or acute hemorrhage then emergency surgery may be necessary. Radiation may reduce the size. ...Read more
