Depends: Stable aneurysms (small and not growing) usually have no symptoms ... Large or growing aneurysms, or those about to rupture usually cause pain (abdomen and/or back) and problems with organs that have had their artery branches from the aorta closed off (e.g. Intestines, kidneys, legs, etc.

Be evaluated: Full history, physical, exam and probably an abdominal ultrasound if you are concerned about abdominal. Aneurysms can be anywhere with arteries ( and rarely veins).
Dr. Soren Singel

Call 911: Call 911 as these are life threatening emergencies. Which type of aneurysm? Abdominal aortic aneurysm - see GI surgeon. Cerebral aneurysm - see neurosurgeon. What symptoms? Aneurysms are usually asymptomatic until they burst, which may lead to death in a very short time.
