Concerning MRI results

I am very concerned with the findings from my MRI report and was hoping for a bit of insight into the findings. The findings are as follows:  The bone lesion with T1 hyperintensity in the eighth thoracic vertebral body is a benign hemangioma. Posterior disc bulging at t7-t8 level. Posterior disc herniation centrally with thecal sac indentation at the t8-t9 level. If anyone can shed some light on these findings I would be extremely grateful.

Hi there!

The report describes a benign vascular mass (haemangioma) within the body of T8 vertebra. (The lesion being benign should not be anything to worry about.) Also described is an intervertebral disc herniation at T7/ T8 and T8/ T9 levels, the latter causing an impression on the outer covering of the spinal cord.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
