Brain Aneurysm Definition

Definition

An aneurysm is a weakened blood vessel in the brain that collects blood. The bulging, blood-filled pocket can put pressure on parts of the brain, pressing on nearby nerves. This can cause symptoms or cause the blood vessel to rupture (hemorrhage). Early detection and diagnosis can help prevent severe or fatal complications. Many aneurysms go unnoticed for a lifetime and cause no symptoms.
