The aorta is a large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The aorta passes through the abdomen and at times, its lower part develops a swelling (aneurysm) which can prove fatal if it ruptures.
The exact cause of aneurysms is not known though research has pointed out towards factors like tobacco use, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), and infection in the aorta (vasculitis) as possible causes.
Symptoms of abdominal aortic aneurysm:
Aneurysms may not always manifest themselves with signs or symptoms. Some of them may develop and stay small never growing to a size that would pose complications. Most of them grow very slowly though a few may enlarge quickly. While they are small doctors may monitor aneurysm very closely. Enlarged ones may need surgery for removal. Some signs that indicate that an aneurysm has grown to pose considerate health risk include:
i. A throbbing near the navel
ii. Deep, constant pain in the abdomen or at the side of the abdomen
iii. Back pain
