abdominal aneurysm

I am a 68 yr old woman,thin built, I had an ultra sound scan on my abdomin (abdomen) and was told I have a 3.3 cm aneurysm. I don't smoke or have high blood pressure. How dangerous is this aneurysm?

Hi there!

This would depend on the structure that is involved with the aneurysm. If referring to the aneurysm of a blood vessel, the prognosis would depend on the vessel involved and its location. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
