I am a female in her mid 40's. I will be going to the hospital on the advice of my doctor to get an MRI. A CT scan yesterday showed a cyst on my aorta 8mm in size.Can anyone give me more information about this condition?
I attempted to review the medical literature but there is virtually no literature on this topic. I would get the MRI to see if this is truly a cyst. Sometimes people with a previous history of syphilis get aortic aneurysms or cysts. If that is not your case you may have cystic medial necrosis..I think the MRI will help clarify.
