Brain Aneurysms

It may be hard to believe, but many people find out they have a brain aneurysm by accident, usually by undergoing scans for an unrelated issue. It's hard to predict if they will ever burst or bleed, and many live with aneurysms without a problem. Neurosurgeon Daniel Barrow says that the discovery of an aneurysm can be beneficial but also poses a tough decision about undergoing surgical or endovascular treatment.
