I was recently diagnosed with arteriovenous malformation. How to treat this?

Several approaches. There are surgical and non surgical approaches to treating AVMs. Most commonly now is embolizing the vessels with coils of wire, beads or glue, injected through a catheter durectly into the AVM. Surgery may involve clipping feeding vessels or total removal, and the use of Proton Beam iradiation.
