In brief: Depends

There are two main treatments for brain aneurysms.
One is surgery and the other is embolization of the aneurysm. They both have good and bad issues to be discussed with your doctor. Brain aneurysms are a serious matter. But, take your time and make sure you understand the risks of both the procedures. Then compare them to the risk of doing neither.
