Am I at a big risk for having an Aortic Aneurysm?

I understand that aortic aneurysms can run in families. If I were you, I would ask a doctor about a test to determine whether or not you have one. If your mother and your aunt still have theirs, they are probably small enough to watch rather than surgical repair. It’s a watch and wait situation but a borderline MRA or whatever the doctor recommends would at least let you know whether or not you need to watch and wait.

I would agree that you need to have an echocardiogram along with the genetic test I suggest in my comment below.
