What is an aneurysm?

Is It an Aneurysm?

An aneurysm is an abnormal sac-like bulge which occurs in the wall of an artery. In the case of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, abdominal pain will surface as a result of a mass in the abdomen. Most often, this mass will cause abdominal pain symptoms that tend to have several distinct qualities. They:

  • Are severe and throbbing
  • Are sudden yet persistent
  • Will sometimes radiate to other parts of body, including groin, buttocks, or legs
  • Do not occur spasmodically
This condition also tends to be accompanied by symptoms of abdominal pulsation, back pain, fatigue, and thirst. Aneurysms develop over a length of time, though often lacking any symptoms at all while they develop. When the aneurysm expands and tears open, blood leaks along the artery wall causing abdominal pain symptoms to occur suddenly.

If you are displaying abdominal pain symptoms or any of the other symptoms listed, and suspect that you may be experiencing an aortic aneurysm, please contact a doctor to secure your suspicions.
