Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Know the Signs

If you are having signs or symptoms pointing to issues within your abdominal area, it could be one of many causes. However, an abdominal aortic aneurysm is one cause that can present in several ways, and it should never be ignored. Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic wants you to know if you or someone in your household has signs and symptoms, you can get abdominal aortic aneurysm testing and screening at our Seminole location.

What Is It?

Abdominal aortic aneurysms develop in the lower portion of the aorta, a major blood vessel that helps supply blood to the rest of the body. The aorta goes from the heart down through the center of the chest and into the abdomen. Due to the aorta being the biggest blood vessel in the human body, a rupture can lead to life-threatening bleeding. A few factors dictate treatment options, like waiting and watching or emergency surgery, and these factors include how fast it is growing and the size of the aneurysm.

Know The Symptoms

These aneurysms grow slowly and sometimes have hard-to-notice symptoms, which makes them challenging to detect. Some may never rupture, and some start small and stay that way. However, if there is a larger one that is growing fast, there are some signs you can look for:

  • Back pain
  • Constant, deep pain located in the belly or on the side
  • Pulsing near your belly button

When To Seek Help

Should you experience pain, especially discomfort that is severe and sudden, you should seek medical help. There could be signs like intense and persistent back pain that feels like a tearing sensation. You may also have a fast pulse or lowered blood pressure. We are here at Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic for emergency services to provide the screening and testing you need to detect an abdominal aortic aneurysm so you can get the treatment you need.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
