Abdominal aortic aneurysm
An abnormal enlarging and thinning of the aorta (the largest blood vessel in the body) somewhere in the abdomen or pelvis. The exact cause is not known, though genetics, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking play a role. If the aneurysm tears open, the bleeding can be life threatening. Sometimes surgery is required to prevent this.
