In brief: Increasing
Increase risk for brain hemorrhage can result from many conditions and life styles, such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, smoking, & inheritance.
Over time our blood vessels become stiff unable to withstand the constant intraluminal pressure and they leak or break. The older you get the more likely this is to occur. To mitigate these, eat well, don't smoke (or stop), exercise regularly see doc.
