When should a dr advise a patient of a 2mm MCA aneurysm?

I was diagnosed with an MCA aneurysm in 12/12.  When I went in for an MRI I asked for copies of 12/12 hospitalization test results.  Radiologist reported a 2mm MCA aneurysm.  Is it normal to not advise a patient of an aneurysm of this size?

Hi!
Aneurysms can be incidental findings. A 2mm MCA aneurysm if not causing any symptoms is usually monitored through repeat MRIs. Usually a 2mm aneurysm does not cause any symptoms and is not at risk of bleed, especially if it has not grown since last MRI. However, it would be best to discuss this with your neurologist.  Take care!
