If it hurts it burst
If you already know you have an abdominal aneurysm
and develop back or flank pain
, go to the emergency room. It will or may have already burst.
Do not delay -- go to er right away! elderly white male (over 50) smokers are the most likely to have these -- get a screening test if you are in this category of people! also get screened it anyone in your family had an aneurysm.
