okay, my dad is almost 80 years old. his brother was diagnosed with a anuerysm in his stomach. so my dad went and got screened, he has one two. i know they can be dangerous. he gets checked every year for this too. he just told me it can be inherited and about my uncle (his brother) having one. i am aggrevated, i can find plenty of information about anuerysms in the brain. but the stomach, i can't get the info i am looking for. i want to know what causes it in the stomach. my father in law told me some off the wall thing. i have worked in the medical field for a total of 14 years, i have never heard of his reason. anybody know anything about stomach anuerysm's? i know i could ask a doctor, but i would need a appt. for that and i have one sch. in Oct. that was the first appt. they had i wish people would ask more questions when they go to the doctor, my dad does not.
