In brief: Depends
It depends on location and cause.
Aneurysms are at risk for two major complications- rupture and dissection (which can lead to rupture or other problems such has blockage of other arteries or stroke). How quickly an aneurysm grows and the risk of rupture is related to underlying cause and annual or biannual imaging will be indicated to track the size.

In brief: Possibly
You will need to have an aneuysm checked every 1-2 years.
If it starts to enlarge, repair may be necessary.
