Can I exercise if i have aneurysms? Or will it harm me?

Moderation

Yes you can excercise but nothing extreme. Any excercise that can make your blood pressure very high can induce rupture . Also this depends on location and size of the aneurysm , for example if you have a 3.5 cm abdominal aortic aneurysm then you are safe but if it is 8 cm then get it fixed soon first

Depends on size & location of aneurysm...assuming we are talking about aortic aneurysm. Ct or MRI scans are useful for determining the above

You need to be careful not to raise your blood pressure and a lot depends on where your aneurysm is. Would talk to your vascular surgeon before proceeding
