Symptoms and Diagnosis

Many brain aneurysms won't cause signs or symptoms before they hemorrhage. Sometimes, however, an aneurysm may press on surrounding brain structures, causing:

  • Headache that is sudden and severe
  • Numbness
  • Pain behind the eye
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Vision change
  • Weakness

Dr. Philip Stieg, Chief of Neurological Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, discusses the symptoms of an aneurysm.

NewYork-Presbyterian doctors can determine if symptoms and warning signs are related to a cerebral aneurysm, often by using imaging tests such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. Brain angiograms may also be used for treatment planning.
