I had recently had a MRI on my thoracic area couple of days ago and they found an atypical hemangioma 15mm on T2 vertebral body. I want to know what is the treatment for this situation? I have been experiencing back, hip pain for several months and also I have tingling going on in the left hand even though I am a right hand user. I want to know which physician should I go to for this situation?
Hi, surgical options are undertaken only if hemangiomas are symptomatic. Options like lesion excision, decompressive laminectomy, resection of epidural extension, bone grafting, and use of metallic prostheses are done depending upon severity and site of lesions.
