Symptoms of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

In most cases, there are no major symptoms for AAA. Occasionally, patients may feel abdominal, back, or side pain. Seventy-five percent of the aneurysms that are discovered are detected from diagnostic tests (such as x-rays) that were given for other health problems.

Individuals may also feel a coldness, numbness, or tingling in their feet and hands.
