There are many types of hemangiomas, and they can occur throughout the body, including in skin, muscle, bone, and internal organs.

Spinal hemangiomas are benign tumors that are most commonly seen in the mid-back thoracic and lower back lumbar. Hemangiomas most often appear in adults between the ages of 30 and Most cases show no symptoms.
