A 24-year-old member asked:

Can a brain aneurysm be caused by a head injury?

No: Aneurysms form most commonly as a result of a weakened area of the blood vessel wall which may become enlarged (forming an aneurysm) over time. High blood pressure and smoking may accelerate this process but it is not related to trauma.
