This is Dr. David

the average aorta diameter for women your age is about 3.8cm in size.

your aorta diameter is 4.1cm which is just slightly enlarged.

this can be watched safely and monitored over time.

this is called a very mild case of aortic aneurysm

your doctors will repeat this CT scan test in 6-12 months and continue to monitor the size of your aorta which is the large blood vessel which leaves the heart and carries all of the good blood to the rest of the body

if the aorta diameter gets too large too fast, it might require surgery, but the chances of that happening are very very small.

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you doctor for explanation. My doctor just said ..no aneurism...did not go into explaining why some sits states didn't reading. No mention of any follow up. Also, nothing clear on the hypodense lesion area..what and nots in regards ***** ***** It seem little knowledge of reading is more confusing and still not clear picture.

It difficult having fallen three times in two weeks, broken glass, bruises, black and blue areas over and around the eye and still ruff looking deep red on eye lid. One toe, second on left foot feel like a log, can't explain just very different. and now walking with HEAVY left foot down. I even think that the toe caused the unbalance before falling.
Appreciate the quickness you answered for it is a worry but can't do anything about it.
