Resource type

About 15% of strokes are due to bleeding in or around the brain (haemorrhagic stroke). Haemorrhagic strokes tend to affect younger people more than other types of stroke. This guide describes the two main types of stroke caused by bleeding in the brain, intracerebral and subarachnoid haemorrhage, and how they are diagnosed and treated. It also lists other sources of information and support.
