Default vm questions

Hi I am 28 years old, after a looooong process, I have been diagnosed with a VM located between my ribs and lungs on the right side up against my spine at T2-T4. Although, I am not convinced it is not an AVM concidering that in my original angiogram it is reported to have supply from the It is starting to deform my spine, although there is no outside indication of the mass. I have alot of pain most of which is nerve related. I have started to notice small red dots on various parts of my body. From what I can tell they look like "cherry angiomas". But I seem to have many of them now when I used to not have any. I even have 3 on my face. I am told that these just come with age, but that must mean I am progressing in age much faster than I thought I would.... Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had anything similar happen? Thanks.

Maureen

I got lots of them when I was pregnant, but they went away.

Have you mentioned them to your physician?

I have but just get the "you get those as you get older" thing. It seems like I am finding more every week, but then I think maybe they were there already and I never noticed them?

I am 38 and have just noticed in the last 12 months lots of red dots in my birthmark (on my leg) where it is not getting lasered. The doctor said you get them with age and she is going to start laser treatment on them to see how that goes.
