How common are Haemangiomas in Hughes Syndrome ?

When I were in my teens I had a large red mass appear on my back just below my waist line. It was a fierce purple reddish looking thing that many thought was a birthmark.

Last year it was surgically removed, to my relief I was told it was a non-malignant heamangiomas. I have since had an MRI of my spine carried out at Guys Hospital. The results of the MRI have shown further heamangiomas noted as > incidental vertebral body heamangiomas at T5 T8 T9 L1 and L2.

I am now concerned I have more of these mangiomas in other parts of my body, are they common in hughes patients ?
