What Are the Symptoms of an Aneurysm, and How Is the Condition Diagnosed?

March 1, 2019

From the Everyday Health website

Because most people who have an aneurysm don’t experience any noticeable symptoms, they can live for years with the aneurysm undetected and without any other health problems.

But once the aneurysm expands and puts pressure on neighboring nerves and tissues, it can cause pain, numbness, or other symptoms.

More severe (and even life-threatening) symptoms occur when an aneurysm leaks blood into the wall of the artery and into nearby tissues, and then bursts or blocks blood flow in the arteries.

The specific symptoms of aneurysms depend on the type of aneurysm, its location, and whether it’s affecting other organs or structures in the body. Because most aneurysms can be successfully treated, knowing the signs and symptoms can save your life.
