I just got my results back from my mri of the brain. The doctor said that I have two benign abnormalities and that I will have to have another brain scan with contrast in 3 months. One of the abnormalities is called capillary telangiectasia which is a cluster of blood vessels in the middle of the pons area of my brain. I guess they aren't supposed to be there. She has assured me that it isn't a tumor.
I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of this and also if it is benign why do we have to keep an eye on it?
P.S. She says it doesn't have anything to do with MCTD or Lupus.
