WHAT IS A BRAIN ANEURYSM?

Ruptured brain aneurysms usually cause bleeding into the space around the brain, called subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), which causes sudden symptoms such as sudden and severe headache, often described as "the worst headache of my life", nausea, vomiting and/or stiff neck. Unruptured brain aneurysms usually have no symptoms. Typically, these aneurysms are small. Many unruptured aneurysms are found incidentally when tests are being done to screen for other conditions.
