In brief: May not know
Often asymptomatic.
Can cause severe headache, visual changes, stiff neck, and other focal neurological abnormalities if the aneurysm is large enough or ruptures.

In brief: MRA or CTA
Unless you have neurologic symptoms that may lead your neurologist or neurosurgeon to order an mra or cta or cerebral angiogram you would not know.
So a high index of suspicion on the part of your neurologist to order the studies is the only way to know before rupture of the aneurysm.
