Causes Of Brain Aneurysm In Young Adults
Congenital: The classic teaching has been that there is a congenital defect in the walls of the blood vessels from which the aneurysm arises. This is at the juncture of the vessels usually at the base of the skull in what is called the circle of willis. This allows the growth of the aneurysm over time. This is exacerbated by hypertension or smoking. Persons with polycystic kidney disease have increased risk.
Incompletely known: This is incompletely understood. It starts with a localized weakness in blood vessels, no known way to predict in whom. Risk factors include cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, increasing age, rare predisposing weaknesses of arteries known as "familial aneurysms" and some rare predisposing conditions, which your doctor should evaluate. If headaches are present, get screening with mri/mra.
Cause unknown: The vast majority of intracranial aneurysms occur sporadically and the cause is unknown. It is likely that there is a genetic predisposition of certain people that have a weakness in the construction of the arterial wall that overtime bulges out and forms an aneurysm.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Stress does not cause aneurysms. Stress can however cause high blood pressure, which may be prone to burst an aneurysm if it already exists. Headaches are also frequently caused by stress without any other underlying pathology. You can always discuss this with your doctor if you're worried about it. Hope this helps!
Probably not: Brain aneurysms are usually acquired, and peak incidence for rupture is in the early 50s. Very unusual in the pediatric population, even with a family history. Perhaps by the time they are in their mid thirties, if there are two first degree relatives with brain aneurysms, would screening be recommended.

Can being angry and/or yelling cause a brain aneurysm to form? When I get upset it feels like their is pressure in my head.
No correlation: Can anger and yelling be responsible for the formation of brain aneurysms? No. Most aneurysms have a genetic component. Risk factors include : Family history Circulatory disorders, malformations Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) High blood pressure Smoking Head injuries Infections Tumors
I got angry a lot over the last 2 months while recovering from a concussion. Could this raise bp and thus cause brain aneurysm/damage?? Thanks
What causes a brain aneurysm to develop then rupture for people in their early 20s? Hereditary? Lifestyle choices like smoking? Please elaborate
Brain aneurysm young: What causes a brain aneurysm to develop then rupture for people in their early 20s? Hereditary? Lifestyle choices like smoking? Please elaborate. ANS: 1 cause is inherited high BP called glucocorticoid remedial HTN. Also rare families with short fingers. I specialize in these and happy to do 2nd opinion. Need pictures of hands. Others have inherited weak artery walls. BCPs increase risk.
No: Cerebral aneurysms are congenital weakening of the lining of blood vessels. They are present in about one in a hundred patients. The incidence seems to increase as we grow older.See 3 more doctor answers
Not usually: Strokes and brain issues can come with either but they are not very common together.See 2 more doctor answers
No: There has been no association between pushing and formation of brain aneurysms. There have been concerns of increased risks of pushing in patients with certain specific neurological conditions (shunts, strokes, etc). Patients with neurological conditions should ask their OB and neurologist about the safest mode of delivery.
