could have one too
i recently found out my uncle had an aneurysm and his doc said that it could be heriditary and his closest relatives should get checked out. The problem is i dont have health insurance and cant afford another hospital bill esp a mri. I have already been to the e.r. twice in the past month due to other health problems, usually i dont go but i was in severe pain and couldnt handle it. Has anyone else heard of having a possible aneurysm bc a close family member has one?

There is a heriditary component to aneruysms but so are lifestyle choices i.e. high blood pressure, poor diet, smoking.  If you have not had symptoms be less worried.  It will be important for you to make sure carrying health insurance takes a priority for you in life.
