The latest on the working of my brain and gray matter

I saw the neurologist today. I do not have another brain tumor (good news). I do have a hemangioma which is a cluster of blood vessels on my head- between my brain and my scull. The doctor said that he has seen them in the spine and liver, but never in anyone's head. That concerns me. Also, from what I understand, a hemangioma can rupture and hemorrhage. Not likely, but scary. . On Monday I am having an MRA similar to MRI, but to study blood vessels in the neck and brain. The neurologist still wants me to see the neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins. Oh, and he says that the hemangioma is not likely the cause of my headaches. I disagree. Stay tuned!
