In brief: Maybe no problem
Arteriovenous malformation of brain or spinal cord is a genetic malformation which may be small and inconsequential, but if it ruptures and bleeds could cause local damage, especially in spinal cord.
Brain issues can include local stroke, seizures, and local brain compression plus the bleeding. Surgery, catheterization to close the lesion, and proton beam irradiation may all help. Size critical.
