Hi! If the aneurysm is in brain and is not causing any symptoms like headache, vomiting, dizziness, vision loss etc, then an aneurysm of this size is watched every 4-5 months or earlier if you have symptoms. If however, the aneurysm is in aorta—as I think this is what you were trying to say—then, it needs surgery, where the site of aneurysm is by-passed with help of a graft—an operation almost similar to bypass surgery for a thrombus in coronary artery. Please discuss with your cardiologist.
