Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hemangiomas are benign bone lesions . Approximately 50% of osseous hemangiomas are found in the vertebral bodies (thoracic especially)

Peak incidence occurs in the 50s.
Hemangiomas are largely asymptomatic, usually found incidentally.
In the spine, hemangiomas may compress the spinal cord without causing instability or deformity, and these are best treated with conservative surgical removal.
So leave it to your spine surgeon who will advise remoaval depending on severity of your lesion
