Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening for Men aged 65+

 

A simple scan can tell you if you 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.
