Links to Parkinsons

Anyone know if Cavernomas can develop into Parkinsons? My first MRI resulted in the find of my Cavernoma. No symptoms and discharged. However I got increasingly worse and 18 months after my MRI I was diagnosed with Parkinsons. Think there's s link?

I think coincidental. I had numerous MRI scans following bleed from pons cavernoma and was told I had MS.
