celeberal Cavernous hemigoma
Hi i'm a 24 year old female who has had chronic head aches for years. i could pin point with a texter the exact spot my stabbing pain is coming from. it's been the exact same spot for nearly two years. I've told my doctor but they just said to get my eyes tested, do neck exercises etc and have tried all suggestion. my dad has a celeberal Cavernous hemigoma. The effects are quite severe. I was wondering if this could be genetic? Should I ask my GP to check it out?

There are some that can be genetic. So yes, it may be good to go get a genetic test and some follow up testing.  I found this on a website.

"What genes are related to cerebral cavernous malformation?

Mutations in the CCM2, KRIT1, and PDCD10 genes cause cerebral cavernous malformation.

The precise functions of these genes are not fully understood, but they most likely play a role in blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) during embryonic development. They may also play a role in maintaining existing blood vessels. Researchers have not determined how mutations in these genes can lead to the abnormal capillaries characteristic of cerebral cavernous malformations.

Mutations in these three genes account for 70 percent to 80 percent of all cases of familial cerebral cavernous malformations. The remaining 20 percent to 30 percent of cases may be due to unidentified genes or to other unknown causes."
