Thank you for the input,

Developmental venous anomaly commonly found without any clinical significance. Sometimes associated anomaly like dilatation of cavernous sinus is found which can bleed and needs to be treated. Rarely there can be thrombosis of the developmental venous anomaly which needs urgent intervention. Though he has headache but the MRI did not show any significant issue with the anomaly, they will observe it now. If the headache continues, then repeat MRI can be needed.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
