They've been called "silent killers": aneurysms that lurk in your body without your having a clue they're there. The danger is that if they rupture, the result can be life-threatening. This episode of Healthy Body, Healthy Mind takes a close look at aneurysms that are located in the chest cavity - called thoracic aneurysms. It highlights the risk factors and symptoms that might lead a person to suspect he has an aneurysm. The program also discusses the treatments that could defuse that "ticking time bomb.
