In brief: Yes, but

If you do not have a family history, marfan's, connective tissue disorder or some unusual metabolic disorder, you are too young to have an aortic aneurysm.

Another acquired cause can be due to syphilis - the latter can cause syphilis aortitis which can lead to aortic aneurysms in those younger then 50 yrs of age. It occurs in the tertiary stage of untreated syphilis.

In brief: Aortic problem

Yes. Quite rare, but it does happen, usually due to a genetic anomaly.
