I received an MRI scan report today and it stated that I have a 1.5cm hemangioma at T3. I have a lot of pain in that area, and all the way down my arms and in my hands. The doctor I am seeing did not mention this in the follow up exam, but I got copies of the report. I did not know what a hemangioma was, so I looked it up online. I called his office back, and they told me that it was "normal". That "everybody has one". I explained to them that a lot of my pain is in this area. Should I be concerned, and is it "normal" to have a hemangioma in that area? If so can they be responsible for all of the pain I am in? Does anyone have this information?
