Aneurysms & Stroke: An aneurysm is the result of a weakened blood vessel wall which causes the vessel to expand to an abnormal size. When it gets big enough it has the potential to rupture. If it's a brain aneurysm, then it can rupture and cause bleeding into the brain. A stroke is cellular death within the brain which can cause a variety of neurological problems. Aneurysms don't necessarily produce any symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could you tell me if there's a blood brain barrier, how do people get metastatic/secondary brain tumors?
Imperfect barrier.: The blood brain barrier separates circulating blood from the brain proper. The barrier consists of tight junctions in cells lining the blood vessels in the brain as well as a thick basement membrane and processes from astrocytes (structural/supporting brain cells). This barrier helps to limit pathogens (bacteria) and cancers from entering the brain; however, no physiologic system is "perfect". ...Read more
Depends: Not sure what you mean by "brain bleeding". As for untreated aneurysm, if the aneurysm is small, regular, is in anterior circulation, if you don't smoke, and you have no family history of subarachnoid hemorrhage (aneurysm bleeding) - then chances are you can live long. But the aneurysm must be monitored: if it changes it probably needs treatment. Where is your aneurysm and how big is it? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unknown: Average age of rupture of brain aneurysms is 52. It likely takes a few years but this is so variable. Aneurysms are rarely seen in kids or people less than 35 years of age. Additional factors such as uncontrolled hypertension, smoking, connective tissue disease may accelerate the process to an aneurysn rupturing. Using Cocaine is also known to accelerate rupture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on causes: This depends on the cause of the brain hemorrhage. If it's trauma, it could happen at any age. If from hypertension, it happens whenever the patient's is hypertensive (but usually middle or older ages). Older people tends to bleed easier with relatively less severe trauma. Brain cancer is more common in middle ages and this can cause brain hemorrhage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You can tell: If it is a ruptured aneurysm, headache is classically so severe, it is described as "worst in my life", and is associated with stiff neck, nausea and vomiting and perhaps rapid coma. Although rarely, we have found aneurysms in migraine pts, in my opinion these were co-morbidities unrelated to the headaches. Some nonruptured aneurysms will cause eye changes as they expand, especially double vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Any age: Stroke from interrupted blood flow (ischemic stroke) or bleeding (hemorrhagic stroke) can happen at any age. However, it is more frequent in older age groups, and in people with certain predisposing conditions, including clot-forming conditions, some heart conditions and blood vessel conditions. ...Read more
