Spinal Hemangioma is an often-benign spinal tumor that develops from the blood vessels. These tumors are present in about 10% of people and typically do not cause symptoms or require treatment.
The most common symptom reported by patients with symptomatic hemangiomas is pain at the site of the tumor. The tumors can also cause a compression fracture/wedge fracture if it collapses the spine, though these cases are rare. The only treatment option for symptomatic hemangiomas is to surgically remove the tumor.
