I am a 26 year old male with lower back pain I had a MRI instead of my doctor scheduleing an appointment with me she just sent me my results. I have schmorl nodes minimal disc bulge from L1 upto L4. My main concern is in L5/S1 it reads there is disc desiccation with mild disc space narrowing and a small central disc protrusion. The spinAL canal is mildly narrowed to 12mm in A diameter. There is mild bilateral facet arthropathy. Then I goes on to say. There is a focus of high signal on T1 and T2-weighted images within the T12 vertebral body consistent with a benign hemangioma. The impressions are small central disc herniation of the protrusion type. I understand the impression but could some break it down as to what a hemangiona is and how to deal with it and advice would be great Thank you
No one is permitted or qualified to give you any information regarding any medical testing, imaging or results. You need to make an appointment with your doctor to go over the results in person and discuss any concerns, treatment options and findings.
I would strongly encourage you not to panic, since many of the terms sound worse than they are and some findings listed on these reports don't necessarily mean that there are problems, but simply anatomical findings.
Call your doctor Monday to schedule an appointment.
