<p>Anuerysms are scary. My roommate has a friend whose 19-year-old brother died suddenly, no warning at all, while at the beach from a brain aneurysm. Sometimes there's just nothing you can do to know it's coming. The best prevention methods are just to eat well, exercise, don't smoke, and be tested regularly for high blood pressure and cholesterol. </p>

Well, we should be more aggressive about pursuing genetic testing.

The surgeon stated Aneurysms are/can be heriditary. He advised all siblings, and relatives have MRA/MRI done. I have three children, I would like all of them checked. My son has a stabbing pain between his eye and bridge of his nose. His dr. referred him to a Opthamologist. My question is: What are the guidelines on testing for Aneurysms? I do not want o feel the pain of losing another loved one due to Aneurysm. Do we just sit by and let Aneurysms sneak up on us and take lives? What is being done currently in the medical field? This is a very serious condition. There needs to be more awareness. Since then I have heard of two people dying, and two recovering. Please respond with all you can. I am in desperate need of answers. As well as my family.

I had an abdominal aortic aneursym in December 2006. I was told that 80% do not live. Also was told that it is heriditary.......you can have your family tested via Life Line Screening. They do an ultrasound to check for aneurysms. lifelinescreening.com

I recently had an aneursym in my right wrist repaired. I have since heard from friends that it could be a hereditary problem. I am concerned if I might have any more time bombs in my body. And how to check for them or if it is something that is readily screened for after a discovery of possible manifestation due to the inclusion of an intial discovery? Is a MRI the best way to detect this or what?

After a brain tumor surgery two years ago, I have been rechecked by my neurosurgeon and found to have three mid cerebral anuerysm. I am scheduled for surgery at the University of Wisconsin on Feb 16th....I am very scared to undergo two neosurgeries in two years...also want to know if this is hereditary as I have to biological daughters that are young adults. Can anyone give me an idea if this is hereditary.... I neglected to ask my surgeon this question. Sue Fischer
