Heart echo

I’m a 33yr old male who had echo 5 months ago and now I’m wondering what to do next! For the most part the report said everything was normal and so did my doc, however it says my aortic root was dilated and about 3.9cm! When I googled dilated aortic root it all said aneurysm and that it’s dangerous. No heart disease no valve issues, normal aorta, normal valves. Is this something to worry about or should I seek a evaluation with a cardiologist even though my doctor said all was fine ? He didn’t even mention my aortic root dilation, I found it myself by reading my report

Perhaps you could call that doctor and share your concerns, see what he says. He might refer you to a cardiologist.
