Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits After A Brain Aneurysm
A brain (cerebral) aneurysm is a weak, bulging area in the wall of an artery that supplies blood to your brain. It is also called a cerebral or intracranial aneurysm. The most common kind of brain aneurysm looks like a round berry that is attached to your artery by a tiny neck.
Some brain aneurysms are big enough to put pressure on your surrounding brain tissue. Other brain aneurysms can rupture at a weak spot in your artery wall. When this happens an area of your brain is flooded with blood. A ruptured aneurysm needs medical attention right away. It can become life-threatening, quickly.
Somewhere around 15 million people in the United States have or will have berry-type (saccular) brain aneurysms. This represents between 2% and 5% of the population. It is estimated that 1 in 15 people in the United States will develop a brain aneurysm during their lifetime. However, less than 30,000 of these aneurysms rupture each year. Most aneurysms do not rupture. This is especially true with the small ones.
A brain aneurysm can occur in people of all ages, but they are most often found between the ages of 35 and 60. Women are more likely than men to get a brain aneurysm.
