Welcome to HCM.
Angiomyolipoma are benign tumors. You do not have to worry at all. The back pain may not be related to this condition.
Very rarely it may be associated with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis, which is a condition that affects lungs causing difficulty in breathing, and is usually seen in females of child bearing age.
It is extremely unlikely that you may have that condition.
Maintain a positive attitude and enjoy life to the fullest.
Wish you best of every thing.

Lesions were classified as small if less than 4 cm
Small asymptomatic lesions of less than 4 cm is usually stable.
Medium-sized lesions (4-8 cm) have the most variable behavior.

since you have pain , i would advise you to consult a physician and re evaluate your condition for the same.

i hope i have answered your query.

take care
