It would be a good idea to have your doctor examine you and confirm this though, especially if you are having any abdominal or back pain as that could signify a problem with it. ...Read more
Does the aorta pulsate? Strong pulse in my stomach. Scared could be a AAA although I've had it as long as I can remember. (Years). Female and 17
Calm down.....: Relax, there is nothing terribly unusual about discovering the existence of various pulse points throughout the body. The aorta is the largest vessel leaving the heart and as the heart pulses, so goes the aorta. It's unusual that a 17 yo girl would ask about this, so I wonder if you've discovered a family history of AAA. ...Read more

I have a strong pulse an inch above my knees in the outer left side. It has been there for more than 8 hours now. What could be the problem.?
Interesting: I only say that as there really aren't normally any large vascular structures in the outer side around the knee.

It's hard to be determine the cause without more specifics/exam. ...Read more

The aorta.: Depends on age. If you are a smoker over the age of 65 or had a tearing pain in your abdomen or history of severe abdominal trauma I would be concerned about an aneurysm.
