Cavernoma Awareness Month Online
Cavernoma Ireland is a voluntary support group which aims to help people living in both Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland, to connect and find information about cavernomas. And news of neurological related events taking place, on the Island of Ireland.
We are connected to the charity Cavernoma Alliance UK. www.cavernoma.org.uk
A cavernoma is made up of abnormal blood vessels and can be found in the brain and/or spinal cord and looks like a raspberry. Cavernomas are also known as cavernous angioma, cavernous haemangioma or cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM). They can measure from a few millimetres to several centimetres. A cavernoma can get bigger, but this engorgement is not cancerous, and does not spread to other parts of the body.
