The term AVM is typically used to refer to any blood vessel malformation involving the brain or its surrounding structures, but it is actually a blanket term. From a medical perspective, there are many different types of AVM, each affecting a different part of the brain and coming with its own unique set of symptoms and treatment options.
Unlike most forms of cancer, AVMs are not categorized by stage because AVM is not a progressive condition. AVM is a congenital condition, occurring at birth and continuing throughout life unless treated. Often, someone with an AVM may display no symptoms and go through their entire life without treatment and completely unaware of their condition. In other cases, however, AVMs can grow or create pressure on the brain, leading to headaches, dizziness, or confusion – and if an AVM bursts, it can cause serious issues within the brain.
