A brain aneurysm is usually diagnosed by MRI and angiography (MRA) or computed tomography and angiography (CTA). An MRI is usually used to look for aneurysms in the brain that have not ruptured. Strong magnetic fields and radio waves are used in this sort of scan to obtain detailed pictures of your brain.
Strong emotions, such as being upset or angry, can raise blood pressure and later cause aneurysms to rupture.
Any condition that causes the walls of the arteries to weaken can lead to one. Atherosclerosis and high blood pressure are the most prevalent causes. Aneurysms can also be caused by deep wounds and infections. It's also possible that you were born with a weakening in one of your artery walls.
