Hi. I’m Dr. Mark. I’m a board certified physician and happy to assist you. Give me a few minutes to respond.
Hemangiomas are fairly common and occur nearly anywhere in the body. Like meningiomas the cause for these benign growths is unknown.

What if they cause you problems like constant ringing in my ears and the feeling of being drunk when I don’t drink and light headed ness and poor balance the one in my brain is in the space between my eyes ears and brain and I have had temporary blindness and I have Trigeminal Neuralgia and Hemaplegic Migrains? Sensitivity to bright light.
A neurosurgeon needs to evaluate you. Meningiomas are not cancerous but they can cause symptoms due to pressure on the brain.

The other Brain Tumour is on the opposite side of my brain both located behind my eyes.
The neurologist and neurosurgeon need to evaluate you to see if your symptoms are due to the meningioma or hemangioma.
