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

Why was MRI done?: Hemangiomas are abnormal bundles of blood vessels. Most are benign although there are exceptions. It is important to know why the MRI was done. If the MRI was done for pain at the location of the hemangioma, you may have found the problem. Otherwise, this may be an incidental finding unrelated to the problem which led to the MRI. Discuss it with the doctor who ordered the MRI to determine a plan. ...Read more

I have hemangioma in D2 vertebral body.. is this dangerous? My Doctor didn't mind it

No: If it is truly a hemangioma seen in one of your vertebrae, no problem. Hemangiomas are seen in about 10-15 percent of patients that undergo a lumbar MRI. They simply represent a higher density of vascular tissue in an area of the vertebrae, but can appear as a lesion in the vertebrae on an MRI scan. They are usually of no clinical significance. ...Read more

I have hemangioma in D2 vertebral body.. is this dangerous? My Doctor didn't mind it

? T2 hemangioma: I assume you mean the T2 vertebral body - it is common to see small hemangiomas in a vertebral body (they are found in ~10% of autopsies), and they usually do not need any specific treatment.

If you develop upper back pain or any new pain or weakness in your legs, do see your doctor right away. ...Read more

No cord compression. Vertebral bodies and spinal cord anormal. Spinal canal adequate. A hemangioma in the T6 vertebral body is noted. What does this me?

Mostly benign: Vertebral hemangiomas are benign vascular malformations that displace the adjacent bone. They are usually asymptomatic and typically no treatment is necessary. Acute symptoms may occur from secondary compression fracture, sudden mass effect, and internal hemorrhage. With these secondary effects, there are invasive and noninvasive therapeutic options. ...Read more

Why would my spine hurt to touch in just one area? It hurts to touch one of my thoracic vertebrae. No history of trauma.

Why would my spine hurt to touch in just one area? It hurts to touch one of my thoracic vertebrae. No history of trauma.

Wait And See: One little isolated spot of thoracic vertebral tenderness is hard to figure out without an in-person exam. In your age group it's usually due to a bump or strain, but you say that's not the case. If you said you'd had an infection (even of a tooth)or a fever, then I'd be a bit more concerned and suggest someone take a look at it if it persisted over two weeks or so. If you use IV drugs, get to an ER now. ...Read more
