Background information on Hemangioblastoma [When available]

Hemangioblastomas are tumors of the central nervous system (CNS, especially the cerebellum). These tumors, whether benign (usual) or malignant (rarer), may cause problems, for example angiomas in the brain or spinal cord may press on nerve or brain tissue. As an angioma grows, the walls of the blood vessels may weaken and leak, causing damage to surrounding tissues. Blood leakage from angiomas in the retina can interfere with vision. Cysts may also grow around angiomas.
