Hi there. You have prolapsed intervertebral disc at L3 L4, L4 L5  levels with neural compromise which could be causing back pain and also neurological symptoms in leg and thigh due to nerve compression by thecal indentation and lateral recess narrowing. Cyst/ hemangioma need investigation as this can result in uncontrolled bleeding on rupture. Management would include NSAIDS, hot fomentation, massage, exercises and physiotherapy, epidural injection of steroids, cervical collar and lastly surgical decompression depending on the diagnosis and degree of damage. Hope this helps. Take care.
