Aortic Aneurysm (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Aortic aneurysms are hard to detect, as they often do not cause symptoms. Most people with aortic aneurysms are unaware they have them. And they are often diagnosed during an evaluation for another problem.
If you are diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm, you need to monitor its size and rate of growth. Set up regular exams with your doctor and learn all you can about aneurysms, because complications such as rupture or blood clots can be serious.
