I have got two aneurysms in my head. I went for a ct scan a month ago. I was told they had not grown past 6mm in
two years so I was signed of. What happens now? Do I just have to wait until they burst?

Dr Basu :

Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr Basu :

I understand your concern.

Dr Basu :

As long as the aneurysm size is less than 7 mm, the risk of rupture is low.

Dr Basu :

However you have 2 aneurysms.

Dr Basu :

So, you will need still close monitoring.

Customer:

but what if it grows in the next year am I just left to get on with dying

Dr Basu :

If it grows bigger than 7 mm, then this can be repaired.

Dr Basu :

Nowadays, death is not common with aneurysms.

Dr Basu :

Endovascular repair can be performed.

Customer:

but how will I know if he has signed me of his list

Dr Basu :

No you should follow up with your GP.

Dr Basu :

Your GP can order repeat scans every year.

Customer:

ok that's a plan I thought the gp could not do that

Dr Basu :

no your GP can do that easily.

Dr Basu :

if the sizes gets bigger than 7 mm, then you should see the surgeon again.

Dr Basu :

Otherwise no need.

Customer:

thanks that's all for now

Dr Basu :

very welcome

Customer:
