Default My teenage son has AVM on lip

I am new to this site. My son was diagnosed with an AVM on his upper lip about 2-3 years ago. He is now 16. He had surgery at NYU 2 years ago, it looked like it was gone for a year, but 6 months later it swelled up again. Now docs at NYU advise a second surgery, but we are concerned, we want to do all we can to get rid of it so that he can feel "normal" during these vulnerable years. We wonder if we should pursue embolization. Anyone have any similar experiences?
