What Is The Treatment Of A 2mm Brain Aneurysm
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. ...Read more
If I had a brain aneurysm that burst 3 days ago & did not seek treatment, could I be feeling quite a bit better now?
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). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Will I need surgery for a brain aneurysm? What's the typical method of treatment for brain aneurysms?
Haven't exercised properly in 6 months, I'm terrified that if I work out I'll get a brain aneurysm or some sort of clot and die. But I need to get fit?
Crikey, Juan!: Exercising doesn't cause brain aneurysms. NOT exercising also doesn't cause brain aneurysms. Sedentary people are MORE likely to get "clots" than active people. A healthy 18-y/o has nothing to fear from exercise. It sounds like you have more of a problem with severe anxiety & catastrophic ideation than with exercise. You may want to consider addressing that. ...Read more
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
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?

It depends on the position of the aneurysm. Discuss this with an endovascular neurosurgeon. ...Read moreSee 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. ...Read more

Artery wall bulge:
Normally blood vessels are smooth and even like a sipping straw. Occasionally the wall weakens from age, trauma, atherosclerosis, plaque and the wall bulges out kind of like blowing bubblegum. The wall becomes thinner than normal thus is prone to rupture which allows for bleeding to occur.
