Just got a copy of my lumbar mri report and there are multiple lesions which apparently are indicative of 'haemangiomata'. What does this mean and should I be concerned? T2 and STIR have high singal sequences, and low signal on TI. Other findings too but can understand these. Googled it but just came up with a list of skin tumours, which I don't have. I would really appreciate an answer thanks.
Thanks for taking the time to respond. I didn't know if haemangiomata and haemangioma were the same. I suppose they are. I've been referred to a neurologist because of hip pain and weakness. My knee jerk reflex on one side is reduced. I'm in my early forties. I also have bladder problems which I've been told are neurological. I was told by my doctor that my MRI was nothing remarkable, so was shocked when I saw the report. The lesions are in vertebrae T12,L1,L2,L4,L5 and S1. Lots of other problems also reported but these are degenerative changes as far as I know. My lower back seems a mess. I am worried about the cause and prognosis for these lesions, and that I was not told about them. I had to apply independantly to view the report. Even now I am missing information. Despite my doctor's reassurances I was referred for a very early appointment to see a neurologist (next week). I am quite shocked and confused as to what is going on. I have never turned to an internet site for help before but this conflict of what I was told and what I have found out has thrown me. Any advice or input will help. Also I am doing my own research and will press for more information. Thank you so much.
