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.

They told the er doctor that even with symptoms that was to small to treat. To tell me to let my primary know and keep watching it.
Crazy, I know

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.
