I have a 3cm hemangioma on T9, T10 T11 T12. I am having considerable pain now. Is this serious?

A small lesion was found on my thoracic spine 15 years ago. About 7 years ago I began having occasional pain there then go away. Now over the last year my back began hurting more and more, leading me to believe I was straining my back. In July of 2012 I had an MRI for my back and along with a lumbar herniated disk, bulging disk, a large hemangioma was found. I get up everyday doing normal activity and by late morning, my back begins to hurt, considerable by early evening. I have a pinched nerve left hip down to left foot, pins and needles in both feet and two numb toes on left foot. I don't have a job as now and no insurance. Im at a loss what to do and I am worried. I have lost a lot of weight, fatigued as I am being checked for a thyroid disorder. I feel I am in a bad spot and surrounded by brick walls.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Sorry to hear this.  But, don't give up.  You need to check with your nearest hospital or clinic, they might offer some kind of program for people like you with out insurance.  A physician needs to read your MRI results in order to know what treatment would be best for you.
