Is a brain aneurysm rare or a brain hemorrhage? I am only 19 years old, I do not smoke, I am not over weight. Living in fear of this happening to me

A phobia (excessive, irrational fear) can be of one of many kinds, and in this case happens to be of brain aneurysms. The problem is a psychological one, and so are its exam and treatment. It has nothing to do with aneurysms. ...Read more

Other risk factors like smoking and excessive alcohol or drug use may put you at higher risk of aneurysms as well. ...Read more
