In brief: Cerebral aneurysms

An cerebral aneurysm is a focal outpouching or dilation of a portion of an artery providing blood to the brain.
Aneurysms may rupture causing death or stroke or they may remain stable for many decades.

In brief: Cerebral aneurysm

It is a dilitation of a small artery in the brain.
It is at a risk of rupturing if is large. You should be evaluated by a neurosurgeon. Very small aneurysms are left alone and larger ones need treatment.
