Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. To understand aortic aneurysms, please click here https://www.empowher.com/condition/aortic-aneurysm.

There is information there on causes also.

Here is an article from the Cleveland Clinic in regard to kidney disease also which may be helpful https://www.empowher.com/polycystic-kidney-disease/content/polycystic-kidney-disease-review-cleveland-clinic.

I hope this information helps better understand but please let us know if you have additional questions.
