Thank you for your question.
Yes, a traumatic aneurism (distention of the wall of an artery) is not an uncommon occurrence. It is not particularly dangerous in the area that you have acquired it, albeit more prone to mechanical trauma with the risk of rupture . I to suggest you see a surgeon who can ascertain whether it should be removed or not.
