The Common Symptoms, Risk Factors, Treatment and Outlook of Brain Aneurysms

Many medical situations can be life-threatening unless detected early. Aneurysms are one of the most fatal medical sudden occurrences under this category. The most common type of aneurysm is a brain aneurysm. Knowing which warning signs to look for and a quick response to those signs can mean the difference between life and death.

Information. Brain aneurysms are bulges in the brain’s blood vessels. Some brain aneurysms may begin to leak, while others may actually rupture. The majority of brain aneurysms occur at the base of the skull near the underside of the brain, commonly called intercranial aneurysms. While many brain aneurysms will never rupture, recognizing the symptoms of a ruptured aneurysm is vital.
