Multiple hemangionomas with pain and numbness

I recently had an MRI on my cervical and thoracic spine due to a chief compaint of pressure and pain in between my shoulder blades, numbness and tingling in my back muscles, face and fingers. The MRI showed 5 hemangionomas within the vertebral bodies of the T4,6,8,12,and L2 vertebraes. The doctor said they "shouldn't be malignant" and aren't what is causing my pain as far as he knows. Something is cuasing this. Should I get a second opinion?

If the hemangiomas cause pressure symptoms or space occupying into your spine then it may be dangerous, otherwise harmless and mostly cosmetic.
Please confirm the postion of your hemangioms with your neurologist.
Cancer occurs very rarely and they are harmless.
You have a choice for second opinion and please go ahead.
Best of luck and take care!
