Headaches

After having a CAT scan done a few years ago, my doctor told me I had reduced flow in my right corotid artery. He did not think it to be too serious though. I get serious pain in the right side of my head and temple often. I am concerned because my mother has had aneurysms removed a few years ago and still suffers from them. I guess I'm wondering if the reduced flow and/or aneurysms might be hereditary and if I should take this more seriously and have more tests done. It just doesn't seem right that my doctor wouldn't want to follow up more with it.

J,
There is a genetic predisposition to aneurysm within families.  There are also other risk factors that can cause aneurysm development as well.  CAT scans or Radiologists can miss aneurysms.  If you wish you can seek a second opinion by a Neurologist.
