I am a 36 year old female, with a history of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I had a bone marrow transplant, and have been cancer free for 9 years. For the past 4 years I have had chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain. I have been in pain management for the last 4 years. The pain has gotten really bad lately, and I now have numbness in my arms hands, legs, and feet. I just had a MRI done 2 days ago, and the results are: Hyperintense lesion, both on the T1 and T2-weighted sequences, in the T3 vertebral body, representing a hemangioma. Hemangioma in the T3 vertebral body.
Can anyone tell me what this means? I am going crazy, and I won't be able to talk to me oncologist until next month.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
