how will having cerebral aneurysm affect my long-term health?

Depends: This depends upon its size and location. Small aneurysms may never cause any trouble however larger ones may rupture leading to stroke or even death. It is important to have an evaluation by a vascular neurosurgeon and then either be treated or followed.

Cerebral aneurysm: If it is very small it should not affect our health but it may need to be monitored. Larger aneurysms need surgical or endovascular repair.
