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.
“Yung mga factors na pwede magpa-increase ng pagputok nito, with the increase ng blood pressure, o kaya mataas ang mg cholesterol, blood sugar, kasi nakakapangpahina ito ng ugat,” he said.
When the swelling is left unnoticed and treated, it may lead to subarachnoid 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.
