By the way, doctor: Do I need to be checked for a brain aneurysm?
By the way, Doctor
Q. My sister passed away from a brain aneurysm several months ago. She was just 33. My doctor says I have nothing to worry about because it's not hereditary. Still, I'm worried. Do I and other close relatives need to be checked?
A. I am very sorry to hear about your sister. And it's understandable that you'd be worried.
