Hello Melissa6666,

Welcome again to EmpowHER. I think you should speak with your neurosurgeon about your concerns.

Hemangiomas are benign tumors that develop from blood vessels.

Spinal hemangiomas are widespread: they are present in about 10% of people. In fact, they are the most common benign spinal tumors. The majority of these tumors will be discovered only incidentally (in passing) or not at all, will never cause symptoms, and do not require treatment. Only spinal hemangiomas that cause pain or neurological symptoms will generally require treatment.
