Does it cause problems if you have a blood clot inside a brain aneurysm? What should you worry about with this issue?
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
Rare, so no worries: A person who has anxiety and has fear of brain aneurysms (without any normal reason to be fearing brain aneurysms) doesn't have an aneurysm problem, but instead has a phobia. 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.

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

Can coughing really hard cause a brain aneurysm or other serious problem? I've had a headache since I coughed hard 2 days ago. Tylenol (acetaminophen) isn't helping.
It cannot: Coughing hard cannot cause a brain aneurysm. Headache from aneurysmal rupture will be the worst headache of your life. Violent coughing can cause arterial dissection of the carotid or vertebral arteries that can cause headache or neck pain. If you have a primary care physician, get checked up because you need to be worked up and on medications such as blood thinners if you have this. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
