What is a Brain Aneurysm?
Aneurysms are found in 2-5% of the population and are more likely to occur in adults age 40-60. People can live with an aneurysm for years without even knowing they have one.
In other cases, an unruptured aneurysm will cause problems by pressing on areas in the brain. When this happens, the person may suffer from severe headaches, blurred vision, changes in speech, and neck pain, depending on what areas of the brain are affected and how bad the aneurysm is.
