In brief: Same as men

Most of the time AAA is asymptomatic (no symptoms) but can present with abdominal or back pain , compression on organs or rupture and shock.

In brief: Most often none

In most cases there are'nt any symptoms.
Chest pain and/ or back pain is associated with a rapidly enlarging or tearing aneurysm.
