Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
Posted or Updated on 22 Feb 2024
A simple scan call tell me aged 65+ if they have an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
This is an enlargement of the main blood vessel in the abdomen and if left untreated it can be fatal.
Men aged 65+ are most at risk.
NHS screening invitations will be sent to men aged 65 this year and those over 65 can request a scan.
