Not related: Head trauma does not cause brain aneurysms, as these are congenital berry aneurysms or caused by uncontrolled chronic hypertension (Charcot-Bouchard). Trauma can cause large extra cranial vascular dissections, but these are acute to subacute. Why do you worry about an aneurysm? Would a Concierge visit with evaluation help?
