Brief Answer:
Where is the aneurysm located? Can you upload the report for review?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed your information fully. There is information required to clearly respond to this question which is lacking.

1. When was the last time this aneurysm was evaluated?
2. Where is it located? I will need the report to determine this.

If this aneurysm is located at a point that can interfere with vision if it grows bigger, then we have to be worried. If not, then these symptoms cannot be linked to it and may rather represent something else like migraine headaches and not aneurysm related.

I hope to hear from you so that we can continue from there on.

I was diagnosed with a 3.4 arotic aneurysm in January of this year. I realize that is relatively small, however, six months ago I had a CT scan with contrast and there was no mention of aneurysm. So is that size any thing to be concerned about in six months time, or do they start about that size.

I have a blocked off right-hand carotid artery - it's not "blocked" in the way that heart arteries become blocked with plaque. It's thought to have been caused by a coil embolisation of a cerebral aneurysm some years ago. The left-hand carotid is working well, but there is obviously increased blood flow on the left of the brain.
