What is a brain aneurysm?

A brain aneurysm, also known as a brain cerebral, is the swelling of the artery’s weak area that is responsible for supplying blood to the brain according to Pinoy MD report. This condition has no symptoms and often unnoticed.

According to Dr. Carlos Francis Santiago, an endovascular neurosurgeon, there are factors that cause a brain aneurysm that is in our control.


“These are the factors that can increase the burden, with the increase of blood pressure, or higher cholesterol, blood sugar, because it weakens the vein,” he said.

When the swelling is left unnoticed and treated, it may lead to sub-arachnoid hemorrhage, a condition where the wall becomes thin and the blood explodes in the skull which results in a stroke.

Studies show that people ages 35-60 are prone in a brain aneurysm where women are more at risk than men. Smoking can also contributes to the risk of having a brain aneurysm.
