Thank you for your question. Cavernous angiomas are very often benign and fluid-filled brain cavities, but 1/3 of the patients have associated with other brain malformations that carry a higher morbidity/mortality.  Most of the times angiomas are quickly identified on MRI, but some of the smaller vascular malformations may be difficult to identify. Since you have symptoms of headache, hemiparesis (paralysis of half body), I would recommend you to see a neurologist who can evaluate the details of your case and could better determine the insight of your situation.  If your neurologist identifies further warning signs he or she would like to refer you to a neurosurgeon much sooner.  Hope this helps.

Sorry earlier posting was not for you and mistakenly posted. Usually, meningitis symptoms resolves completely if treated timely and do not have future affect on health. However, improper treatment or relapsed cases may show future neurological symptoms. Additionally, have a balanced diet, regularly exercise and avoid taking unnecessary non prescription drugs to keep your immunity high. Hope this helps.
