May I ask do y’all have cta or mri to check on growth of aneurysm?
Does a echo gram show the aneurysm?

I went to a Surgeon today about my dilated aneurysm. He blew it off and said radiographer calls anything over 3cm a dilation and mine is 3.4.. my concern is it’s new. This was just check last month and it was in normal range. I was still hurting in they checked again in found it had dilated there.
He had no answer for why it had changed.
Hi this is my 1st post. I a 45 year old female. Not over weight but I smoke. After having what feels like muscle tearing and dizziness I went to the er a month ago. I was told I had a 3.2 dilation ascending aorta and to follow up with a doctor. The er called umc who said they would not even see me at that size, even with symptoms. The pain comes in goes. My primary did a new cta Friday it said it is 3.4. They gave me the number to the doctors at USA in mobile. I also am calling mayo I’m the morning.
It seems small but, I can hear my heart beat in my shoulder and I have a history of brain aneurysms. What doctors do I need to see at the mayo hospital? I’m so full of anxiety now.
What should I ask for and who should I see? I wanted to add I now have a appointment Thursday to see a surgeon at USA in mobile.
Thank you all for listening any advice would be helpful!!
Ps- this has went on for months. They have ran so many test on me and they all came back good till last month. I had a heart ultrasound 3 months ago that was fine.. I told them something was wrong.
