How Long Can You Live With A Brain Aneurysm Untreated
Unknown: There is no good answer to this question because we have only limited data on exactly how, when and why brain aneurysms develop. Once an aneurysm is identified, if it is non-ruptured and small (<5mm in size), we often follow these with yearly tests to see if the aneurysm is enlarging. In these cases, they tend to grow at varying rates or not grow in size at all. ...Read more
Unknown: Average age of rupture of brain aneurysms is 52. It likely takes a few years but this is so variable. Aneurysms are rarely seen in kids or people less than 35 years of age.

Using Cocaine is also known to accelerate rupture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had successful brain aneurysm coiling 1 year ago. Is it safe for me to fly long distance? Can the pressure be a risk?
How long does a Brain Aneurysm take to develop? I had an MRA 7 years ago and it was normal. Could it develop this fast? I am 28.
Yes: Aneurysms often form in an area of focal weakness of the vessel wall, most commonly at a bifurcation of 2 vessel branches. Some people are more prone to have them, and some form for unknown reasons. They can develop at different rates for people depending on many factors including underlying connective tissue abnormalities, blood pressure, etc. I'd say 7 years is more than enough time to form. ...Read more

Cld mild preeclampsia cause brain aneurysm formation in someone with family history or does blood pressure have to remain high for a longer period of time?
Not cause - rupture.: Preeclampsia cannot cause brain aneurysms, but can certainly make them rupture and cause massive strokes. Berry aneurysms in the brain vessels pre-date the pregnancy, but when it is complicated by pree they can leak or rupture with catastrophic consequences. The longer the preeclamptic hypertension goes untreated, the higher the risk of stroke (hemorrhagic, massive, occasionally lethal). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A brain aneurysm: is an out pouching of one of the vessels inside of the brain. The biggest concern is if this were to rupture. This in turn, could cause a person to loose consciousness.

Have it evaluated: It is certainly possible that some of the headaches may be related to surgical healing. However, there are well known long term sequelae from brain aneurysms-particularly if there was a rupture. Delayed hydrocephalus is one of those where the fluid in the ventricles does not absorb as well. This can easily be evaluated by your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
