Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
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.
I am sorry you have fallen
