mangioma,spine,back and leg pain

I have celiac disease, past 2 years have had increasing severe back, hip and leg pain.  Recent MRI showed mangioma in several different areas of my spine.  What is mangioma?  Can this cause the severe back pain?

I believe you may mean hemangioma? They are small collections of blood vessels. If the hemangiomas are found within the body of the vertebrae, they can cause back pain. Check with your doc.

Thank you for your answer.  Dr. called it mangioma but may have shortened the word.  The only information I could find was on hemangioma.  So you are probably right.  Thank you for affirming my actions.
