Where are you located? The method of treatment depends on many factors. Have you been able to see a local doctor about it at all?

Also, write to one of our experts:

Hi and Good Afternoon;

I have had personal experiance with:
1/ Dr. Robert White, Radiologist at Yale New Haven Hospital, New Haven Ct.

2/ Dr. Joseph Upton, Chestnut Hill Mass. I have had hand surgeons tell me he is "The Guru" on peripheral fast-flow A.V.M.s He is part of the Vascular Anomolies Clinic at Boston's Childrens Hospital and also is associated with Beth Isreal in Boston. You will see his name mentioned over and over again when "A.V.M." is searched.
See him, thats my personal opinion. You probably won't have to wait more than 4 weeks for an appointment.

Best wish's!

Scott in Vermont
