Atypical Hemangiomas on MRI Report

Due to back pain in the thoracic spine I recently an MRI. I was diagnosed with "lesions at T7, T11 & T12, atypical for hemangiomas".  The report went on to say that with my history of neoplasm (breast cancer), metastatic disease should be considered.
So what do I do with this information?  Do I need to have these lesions biopsied?  Should I have a bone scan first?
A PET/CT a few months ago did not reveal any uptake in that region.
Please advise.

Hi- I  had a MRI on 1/24/09 of the thoracic spine and they told me I have what they believe are 8 atypical hemangiomas. I have been so scared since I have read that multiple hemangiomas are rare.  

Please let me know what you have found out.  I am due for another MRI in July to compare.

I have had MRI's which show I have multiple hemangiomas thru out my spine.  My pain doctor says they don't cause pain and I'm just a drug seeker.  I am in real pain.  10 years ago I was told I would be in pain for the rest of my life.  I can't get the doctor to talk to my doctor's in Maryland.  Since I've moved to New Jersey I'm in constant pain.  Please, please give me some suggestions!!!!!!!!!!
