In brief: Often there are none
Over 75% of aortic aneurysms are found while tests are performed for another reason.
Other aneurysms are found after a thoughtful physical exam raises a suspicion for AAA and a subsequent ultrasound identifies the problem. Screening exam programs are very effective, non-invasive, and inexpensive.

In brief: Several
Pain in the chest or back depending on the location.
If it is in the abdomen, you may see or feel a pulsation there. These are frequently noticed on an xray perhaps done for some other reason. Of course if the aneurysm ruptures, the symptoms get much more severe and could include passing out.
