Massage Therapy Brain Aneurysm
Massage/Cerebral An.: It is unlikely that massage therapy would "help with" a cerebral aneurysm. However, if as a result of the massage therapy the patients blood pressure was reduced or the patient was able to modify other risk factors, such as quitting smoking, the risk of aneurysm rupture might be reduced slightly. Always discuss therapies such as this with the physician treating your aneurysm.See 2 more doctor answers
I think worthwhile: Chances are on your side. Anxiety, understandably, is a significant issue that accompanies a diagnosis of a brain aneurysm.

Will I need surgery for a brain aneurysm? What's the typical method of treatment for brain aneurysms?
If I had a brain aneurysm that burst 3 days ago & did not seek treatment, could I be feeling quite a bit better now?
Depends: There are two main treatments for brain aneurysms. One is surgery and the other is embolization of the aneurysm. They both have good and bad issues to be discussed with your doctor. Brain aneurysms are a serious matter. But, take your time and make sure you understand the risks of both the procedures. Then compare them to the risk of doing neither.
Yes: After a ruptured brain aneurysm, a patient can live a normal life after surgical/endovascular treatment of the aneurysm. It is important to secure the aneurysm and obliterate it to prevent a of re-bleed. Aggressive treatment up front to prevent potential causes of further insult to the brain are important-ie. Prevent rebleed, treat hydrocephalus, treat vasospasm (spasming of brain vessels post-bleed).See 1 more doctor answer
I'm a 68 year old man, with healthy lifestyle. I have suffered a brain aneurysm in 2006. I need to know what kind of treatments can I take for my cancer. Prostate acinar Adenocarcinoma Gleason 4+3 Score 7 (Grade group 3).?
Depends: If ruptured, outcome is better for coiling vs clipping based on isat trial. Otherwise if unruptured it depends on size, location, calcification, medical comorbidities of patient, and the experience of the cerebral vascular surgeon or endovascular surgeon.See 2 more doctor answers
I have a brain aneurysm 8ml, I'm terrified. I am afraid of surgery and afraid it may also burst anytime. I don't have bloodpressure, don't smoke?
Aneurysm: Certainly, an aneurysm can be terrifying. An 8mm aneurysm is large and should be treated at your age. It may be able to be treated endoscopically by placing little coils into it through a catheter threaded up through your groin. The other alternative is surgery which is what I do. It depends on the position of the aneurysm. Discuss this with an endovascular neurosurgeon.See 2 more doctor answers

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 also.
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.See 1 more doctor answer

I don't want to pass out, I'm really worried about a brain aneurysm. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
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. Monitoring and a discussion with a neurosurgeon about risks and potential for surgery would be warranted depending on size and severity.
I have a small brain aneurysm in the anterior communicating artery, I'm scared of coiling, or anything more invasive, I'm hoping for some opinions?
Be informed: Whether or not to treat the aneurysm depends on several factors including the size of the aneurysm and whether or not you have other health problems. The two best options for the aneurysm are coiling or open surgery. The aneurysm may be more amenable to one or the other depending on size and geometry. In experienced hands, both procedures are pretty safe, although not completely risk free.See 1 more doctor answer
