How concerning is a burst blood vessel in the brain?

In brief: Very concerning

When a blood vessel bursts inside the brain, it bleeds into the surrounding space (or tissue).
That causes increased pressure to surrounding structures which can cause significant damage. Smaller bleeds may cause less damage - unless they happen in more vital areas. Large bleeds sometimes need surgery.
