Yes: Generally speaking, abnormal blood vessels formation such as cavernous malformation or aterio-venous malformation can be treated with surgery, embolization or stererotactic radiosurgery (srs). Intracranial lesions are risky because bleeding from those can cause stroke or even death. Srs with gamma knife or linear based external srs are both effective. Contact neurosurgery and radiation docs.
