Default Re:AVM on face

Hi Seanette,
I'm sorry to hear about your daughter.
I have a question, how did they determine she had the AVM? The doctor our daughter is seeing just felt her face and determined that the arteries aren't involved and I'm concerned that isn't enough.
Right now we are trying to "play along" with our insurace company to please them and are hoping to get the ok to see Dr. Waner.
Does your daughter have any pain or other complications from the malformations?
Our daughter doesn't but, I feel like since she has had it her whole life, maybe she doesn't realize it shouldn't feel that way. The dr. we are dealing with says there's no medical reason to treat it, only cosmetic and that worries me too.
Thanks and good luck,
