5 Facts and Symptoms of a Brain Aneurysm

Would you realize if you, or someone you loved, was suffering a brain aneurysm? According to data surveyed by the The Lisa Colagrossi Foundation (TLCF), likely not, after the survey results revealed that 93-percent of Americans admitted their knowledge about brain aneurysms ranged from limited to non-existent.

Scary stuff, however, here’s how you can identify all the signs and symptoms of an aneurysm…

1. What’s a Brain Aneurysm?
The Langone Medical Center at New York University explains that a brain aneurysm results due to weakness in the wall of a blood vessel within the brain.

As the strength in the vessel’s wall deteriorates, blood flow pressure can cause a bulge and rupture that causes blood to flow out (or bleed) into the space and tissue around the brain.

2. Un-Ruptured Aneurysms
Research from the Lisa Colagrossi Foundation (TLCF) indicates that up to 9-percent of the U.S. population are currently living with un-ruptured aneurysms. In fact, if the aneurysm never ruptures, many folks will never realize it’s existence.

The TLCF data notes that an MRI or image scan can identify an aneurysm, but your doctor may not suggest treatment if it’s small or if it doesn’t pose a risk for leakage or rupture.
