I have an arteriovenous malformation (prefrontal cortex). Now, also really low mean platelet volume. Is the AVM's bleeding risk high because of this?

Platelets

Platelet
A low MPV in and of itself is not necessarily a risk factor for bleeding if the total platelet count is normal. If treating the AVM is not an option, then do avoid aspirin and ginkgo biloba, which can both increase bleeding tendency. Speak to your doctor about getting an Ivy bleeding time test, as it will tell you how well your platelets are working. And do make sure your BP is not elevated.

Does renal arteriovenous malformation usually cause many symptoms?

AVM Symptoms

Arteriovenous_malformation
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.

What are the most common symptoms of renal arteriovenous malformation?

Renal AVM

Arteriovenous_malformation
Renal arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and fistulas include various abnormal connections between the intrarenal arterial and venous systems. They cause hematuria (blood in the urine, which may not be visible to the naked eye) and are associated with hypertension. Gross (visible) hematuria is the initial symptom in about 75% of patients. Also can get kidney pain due to blood clots.
