The latest news on aortic aneurysm
Once an aneurysm develops along the aorta, it will not disappear or reduce in size on its own.
In most cases, aortic aneurysms are found with medical tests such as chest X-rays or chest CT scans.
Most people with a thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysm have no symptoms.
The best prevention for aneurysms is to follow a healthful lifestyle.
An aortic aneurysm is a localized widening or ballooning of the body's largest artery, the aorta.
