In brief: High Cholestrol

High cholestrol has no specific symptoms per se.
The long term having high cholestrol causes heart attack and stroke. Very high cholestrol can cause yellow bumps around the eyes (xanthoma).

In brief: Usually none

High cholesterol usually does not have much symptoms but chronically high levels can lead to heart vessel plaque build up and cause heart attack or stroke.
In some people high cholesterol builds up around the eyes called xanthelasmata and is linked to heart disease.
