An aneurysm, which is experienced as a result of extreme fatigue, stress and insufficient nutrition, occurs in the brain. Aneurysms form in the bifurcation areas of the vessels. This area enlarges when exposed to intense blood or air pressure. Enlarged veins cause bursting. It causes minor bleeding in the brain. As the blood rate in the brain increases, serious damage is experienced. Aneurysm, which causes damage to the body if not intervened early, can result in death. Since large and small hemorrhages spread in the brain, the patient who has this disease should be kept under constant control. Aneurysms that show symptoms very rarely, especially those with a family history, should undergo continuous health examinations. Especially hot weather triggers brain aneurysm.
