Abdominal Aorta plaque?

A recent abdominal ultrasound showed mild plaque buildup in the abdominal aorta that is soft in nature. My doctor did not mention this when he gave me thre results, telling me the results were normal. A CBC and Comprehensive Metabolic Panel were normal. What does this mean?

Hi!
A mild plaque build up will usually not cause any problem. If metabolic panel is fine then, chances of further plaque build up are less. Usually nothing is done until the lumen is considerably narrowed. However, there is no harm in eating healthy and exercising. Do discuss this with your doctor also. Take care!
