Understand your predicament. The risk of rupture for aneurysms smaller than 4.0 centimeters is much less as compared to ones larger than 6.0 cms. Besides this, the risk of rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm depends on the rate at which the aneurysm is expanding. Larger aneurysms tend to expand faster than smaller aneurysms. This will need to be monitored.
The thrombus formation can increase the risk of thrombo embolism, which can block the blood flow through other arteries. So, don't worry and discuss these options with your doctor.
