In brief: None

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is usually silent and has no symptoms until it is beginning to expand or rupture.
If you have a family history or are a hypertensive smoker you should be checked. In most cases this involves an ultrasound of the aorta which is a simple screening test.

In brief: Pain

Typically asymptomatic , but any mid abdominal pain / back pain , feeling of pulsatile mass , family history of aortic aneurysms all warrant to be checked by your physician who probably will order a duplex ultrasound.
