Mild Aortic Ectasia

My brother passed away at 33 with an aortic dissection of the descending thoracic artery approx dia of 4.5
My father 57 years old has an aortic aneurysm of the descending thoracic artery with a dia of 4.8
My grandfather passed away at 77 with a dissection descending thoracic artery approx dia of 5.1
I just received my results and I have a mild aortic ectasia of 4.0 of the descending thoracic artery, how concerned should I be?
