Intraosseous hemangioma is a slow-growing benign neoplasm of capillary, cavernous, or venous origin. The most common type is the cavernous hemangioma. Although found in any bone, seventy-five percent of intraosseous hemangiomas are located in the vertebral bodies (especially the thoracic spine), skull (involved outer table, normal inner table), and facial bones.
Vertebral body hemangiomas are usually asymptomatic and left untreated. Sometimes they are incidentally found in a patient with low back pain. They may develop a soft tissue mass which may lead to neurologic symptoms like pain and numbness.
A CT or MRI is used to define the epidural extent. You should get your condition further evaluated by your doctor.
