In brief: Hemangioma

is a benign tumor of small blood vessel.
It needs surgical excision depending on size, location, and symptoms. In your case, it is "large" and located in difficult location. It could progress to compress spinal cord, which would be a devastating complication. Consult with a spine surgeon immediately.
