At least 60 years old and who has a first-degree relative (for
example, father or brother) who has had an aneurysm.2
Some doctors think that other groups should be screened too. Some say all men 65 years and older should be screened, regardless of their risk. Some say men as young as 50 should be screened if they have a family history. Some say women age 65 and older should be screened if they have ever smoked or have a family history of AAA. Some say women should not be screened at all.
Talk to your doctor about whether the benefits of screening would outweigh the risks in your case. For more information, see:
