Question: Venous Angioma

 ktchambers - Wed Nov 03, 2004 11:28 am

I have been diagnosed with a venous angioma with the possibility of a cavernous angioma as well. My question is this: I had a severe headache episode followed by bloody stools. Is it possible for a bleed from the angioma draining and showing up in stool? I was tested twice after the initial bloody stool and tested negative.
