Good if no bleed

If you can have the aneurysm treated before it bleeds, you should have no effect on your life expectancy. If it bleeds, it depends on how bad the bleed is.

Brain aneurysm ruptured, 30yo woman on life support. What are chances of survival?

Depends on her/hosp

Head-brain
This depends on her deficits, the hospital that is caring for her, and if they are staffed with an experienced interventionalist , a neurosurgeon and a critical care unit experienced in aneurysm care. These latter elements are critical in the ultimate outcome of aneurysm patients. If the hospital that is currently taking care of her doesn't have all of the above, demand transfer to one that does.

What's a brain aneurysm?

Berry aneurysm

Heart
The most common and classic brain aneurysm is the berry or saccular aneurysm. These appear as a ballooning at the branchpoints of cerebral vessels typically at the base of the brain in the Circle of Willis. These are usually asymptomatic until there is a devastating hemorrhage from them. The treatment is to obliterate the aneurysm with surgery or endovascular (coiling techniques).

Is brain aneurysm surgery safe?

Depends

Aneurysm
In the correct hands, brain aneurysm surgery is less risky than it used to be 20 years ago. Unfortunately, all brain aneurysm surgeries (clipping or coiling) carry a risk for stroke and hence cannot be classified as "safe" surgeries. They are moderate to high risks surgeries depending on the size of the aneurysm and the health of the patient. Ask your doctor for details.

Dr. Lon Alexander answered:

Tension headache or Brain aneurysm?

Tension Headache

Cerebral_aneurysm
Brain aneurysms almost never cause symptoms until they leak, or outright rupture. When this occurs, it commonly is "the worse headache" of a person's life. Chronic headaches are almost never from an aneurysm. With the advent of MRI angiography, it is much easier to screen for aneurysms. Consult with your local physician.

Dr. D J answered:

Can a brain aneurysm change someone?

Yes

Cerebral_aneurysm
An aneurysm can cause a change in personality if it leaks or puts pressure on nearby brain tissue in the frontal lobes. It should be treated since it could rupture any time and be fatal. Recovery from a leaking aneurysm usually causes some change in the person but many times this gets better over a few years.
