Cervical Hemangioma Symptoms
Scared. Had MRI of cervical spine in 2009 and 2010.Incidental finding of large hemangioma. No action evet taken. Recent back pains. Ref. To neurodurgeon.
Patience: Hemangiomas are discovered often on mris and are usually incidental (not the cause of the problem, just found coicidentally). If you have changing or worsening symptoms, then repeat MRI is indicated along with follow up with an orthopaedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon. It looks like you are already on track for that. Remain calm and wait until you can discuss this with the neurosurgeon. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had a MRI without contrast. Hemangionoma at t 2. Could that be missed as cancer? I have pain there everyday. But I also have cervical stenosis.
Had a MRI with no contrast that showed hemanginoma at t2. Could this be missed as cancer? Have pain in that area. However I do have cervical stenosis
Depends on size: Most liver hemangioma s are small and are a incidental finding during an ultrasound or ct exam. Small hemangiomas are not symptomatic. Occasionally large hemangiomas, termed cavernous hemangioma, can bleed and cause pain in the right upper abdomen over the liver, but this is unusual. The great majority of hemangiomas never bleed and never cause symptoms and do not become malignant. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
On skin-visible: Hemangiomas (benign tumors of blood vessels) can occur on the skin (w/ or w/o involvement of the neurologic system)-visible, but not a symptom. Hemangiomas of the liver are common-usually no symptoms. If bleed or rupture can cause pain, fever, even shock. Hemangiomas of the brain are common; no symptoms unless they bleed. Then headache and neuro signs, sympts: depend on location and amt of bleed. Read more
YES: Large hepatic hemangiomas of the liver are best managed surgically. Only when symptomatic. Make sure your surgeon is an experienced hepatic surgeon. Good luck. Read more
My bf had surgery almost 6 months ago for a cavernous hemangioma. He has a couple of screws now, but no residual symptoms. Can he ride roller coasters?
Post surgery: No. This is not wise.Get a more detailed answer ›
I have several hemangiomas on my liver had u/s and only said small fat infiltration but no mention of hemangiomas could the fat really ve the hemang?
Its possible: U/s may have missed flow through lesions making it seem like fat. Hemangiomas here are benign and should be little cause for concern. Read more
Benign birthmark: An infantile hemangioma, or "strawberry mark, " is a very common type of birthmark made of blood vessels. Most hemangiomas are not visible at birth. They may at first only appear as a small bruise, scratch or a tiny red bump. Unlike other types of birthmarks, hemangiomas grow and change greatly during the first months of life. They may occur anywhere on the skin surface but are most common on hnt. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hemangioma: Benign neoplasia of small blood vessels.Get a more detailed answer ›
Nests of capillarys: Infants often have nests of capillarys show up within the first month that can be localized, tiny, round or dominate a large area of skin. They grow faster than the child & surrounding nl skin, peaking in relative size about a year & have a strawberry like appearance. This rapid growth phaze is followed by slowing & reversal, often major patches decline & pale parchment like skin is left. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: Many people have hemangiomas without a family history. Occasional hemangiomas can occur genetically and may be isolated or multiple lesions and rare conditions can also involve internal organs. Read more
Like a birth mark: Hemangioma in the skin is known as a 'strawberry mark' and is often found at birth. As many as 15 percent of people have a hemangioma in the bone and don't know it! Now that we do MRI we see these frequently as a bright spot in the vertebral body of the spine. They rarely need any treatment, when accurately diagnosed, but if they are very painful they can be treated with kyphoplasty. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hm.: I'm not sure what you mean by "intervertebral" hemangiomas, but if you mean vertebral hemangiomas, then here: 1. They are common, benign variants with no real possibility of becoming cancer. I see at least 3 every day, so don't worry. 2. If they are very large and in certain key areas, they can fracture, causing back pain. But in general nothing is done to prevent this.
