A brain aneurysm is a weak spot in a blood vessel in the brain that can cause problems if it bursts. Symptoms of an unruptured aneurysm may include headaches, vision problems, and difficulty speaking. However, if an aneurysm does rupture, it can cause a severe headache known as a “thunderclap headache,” along with vomiting, confusion, and loss of consciousness. In extreme cases, it can lead to brain damage, seizures, or even death. Treatment options include preventative measures such as metal coils or clips, but most people will just be monitored closely.
What is Brain aneurysm?
Brain aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain that is caused by a weakness in the wall of the vessel. Aneurysms can occur in any part of the brain, but most commonly develop at the base of the brain, in an area called the circle of Willis. Brain aneurysms can be dangerous because if they rupture, they can cause bleeding in the brain which can lead to stroke, brain damage, or even death. Symptoms of an unruptured aneurysm may include headaches, vision problems, and difficulty speaking. Treatment options include preventative measures such as metal coils or clips, but most people will just be monitored closely.
Brain aneurysms are not very common, but they are not extremely rare either. According to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, approximately 6 million people in the United States have an unruptured brain aneurysm, which means about 1 in 50 people could have one. However, not all brain aneurysms will rupture, and the risk of rupture depends on various factors such as the size, location, and shape of the aneurysm. Nonetheless, a ruptured brain aneurysm is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition.
