Title: Lobulated Lesion
Post by: dmw on March 20, 2006, 01:38:33 PM
I have been reading post for a while and am not able to find what I am looking for. Had MRI last month and was referred to OS. OS appointment not for almost another month but I am very curious as to the findings on MRI.
Have lobulated lesion lies adjacent to the anterior horn of medial meniscus and tracks inferiorly across the anterior aspect of the MCL to extend through the cortex of the medial tibial metaphysis and enter the subcortical bone marrow. 
What? Is this bad?
Also small bakers cyst. No meniscal tear or bone marrow or soft tissue edema is identified.
Most likely would be hemangioma or other lymphovascular malformation.
Is this treatable? I am not able to sleep well as pain is the worst at night. What do I have to look forward to?

Hello, dmw.

I also have 'lobulated lesions'-- three of them, but in my case they are thought to be ganglion cysts.

I did a Google search for hemangioma and came across this article.

Maybe it will answer some of your questions. Sorry I can't offer any first hand experience or advice.

Best wishes,
