Aortic aneurysm. Please comment

I am a healthy 18 year old and have never had any heart problems, I don't smoke or drink or eat that bad ether. I was laying on my stomach and I can feel a pulse in my stomach area. Is this normal? I am not fat but not too skinny. This is scarying me because I typed it into google and got aneurysm and immediately had a mini panic attack. Please comment I am really terrified right now.

Yes it can be normal to feel a pulse in the stomach area. I wouldn't go googleing things like that, it will give you a whole host of possibilities, enough to scare the life out of anyone. The next thing on the list will be a stomach tumour.

Well, not usually, let me put this into perspective.
They are uncommon under the age of 60.
1 in 1000 people will develop one between the ages of 60-65 buy over 90 percent will be too small to be concerned about.
Risks of getting an aneurysm increases after the age of 60.

Thank you that ratio. So just to sum everything up, I don't need to worry about the pulse in my stomach area this is normal and there is a very slim chance of getting one in my age. What is a pulsing bulge mean? I have seen this on my websites in the symptoms of a aortic anuerysm.

laying on your front will compress the front of the abdomen and you will feel pulses being more obvious. If I lay on my front, I feel the same thing, the harder the floor, the harder the pulse.

So there isn't really anything to worry about?
