AVM Symptoms: Typically, yes. Those symptoms are flank or back pain and bloody urine. A common physical finding is high blood pressure. The caveat here is that these symptoms can also be seen in a wide variety of other renal conditions. Thus, if you are concerned that you may have an avm, please see your doctor for a more thorough evaluation.
