Hi. I recently has a ct of the chest for lungs (and can't reach my dr. yet) but it also showed a minimal cardiomegaly with 4.2 cm aneurysm midportion of the ascending aorta. no medialstinal or hilar adenopathy. should I be running to my cadiologist asap. I have an appt. in 10 days with my regular dr. I got the results of the test from a patient portal and haven't spoken to any dr. yet. Elaine

these can be watched and monitored.
