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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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! ...Read more
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. Please refer to the brain aneurysm center for women for more details. Chicagoaneurysm. Com. ...Read more

Can hitting your head cause brain aneurysm? Mild to severe head trauma with pain resolution after 4 minutes.
No, not possible.: No, trauma to the head cannot cause an aneurysm. But I want to make sure we are using the terms in a similar fashion. An aneurysm is an unstable blood vessel, a bleed in the brain is a different process. A hard enough trauma could cause bleeding in the brain or it could (rarely) cause rupture of an existing aneurysm. ...Read more
If brain aneurysm caused partial ptosis, would it definitelybe obvious & severe? Even at earliest stage? Or can it be so subtle you don't notice? Why?
Not likely aneurysm: If your ptosis is so subtle you do not notice it, then you do not have ptosis. Brain aneurysm can cause ptosis by compression of the 3rd cranial nerve by commonly aneurysm of the posterior communicating artery. The ptosis can be partial. This is because the size of the aneurysm and the duration of compression determines degree of ptosis. If it is partial, it would not be obvious and severe. ...Read more
Can concussion cause brain aneurysm? And 4 months after would complications show up by now? Have headaches 2mon,I worry its complication from concussion
Concussion: Yes but a rare complication. After head trauma, an artery in the brain that is tethered or adjacent to the meninges can lead to tearing of an artery wall and formation of an aneurysm. The most common locations are the base of the skull and the pericallosal arteries along the falx cerebri. An MRI and MRA of the brain is used as a screening study to exclude a traumatic intracranial aneurysm. ...Read more
Can concussions cause a brain aneurysm? I have had a couple and I'm worried. If they don't, then what does cause of cerebral aneurysm?
Probably not: Concussions are not a common cause of brain aneurysms. These are believed to be more likely due to genetic factors and other "triggers" like high blood pressure. If there is family history of brain aneurysms you may be at higher risk. Other risk factors like smoking and excessive alcohol or drug use may put you at higher risk of aneurysms as well. ...Read more

However, some families do show multiple family members with aneurysms. Aneurysms are likely weak spot in the artery and grow slowly over years. It is unlikely to show up by 20 but it can. ...Read more
