How many years of having high blood pressure would it take to develop an anuerysm if at all?

Hypertension. Hi, you are on the right track. Hypertension is a chronic disease that causes problems over decades. Family history, smoking, uncontrolled high blood pressure all play a role in aneurysm formation. There are also aneurysms that are found for seemingly no reason as well. Hope this helps! good luck, dr. H.
It varies. Hypertension can contribute to the development of an aneurysm, but it is but one of many factors. Talk to your doctor. And for goodness sake, control your blood pressure.
