I have been diagnosed with an enlarged/dilated abdominal aorta and same with inferior vena cava?

I have been diagnosed with an enlarged/dilated abdominal aorta and same with inferior vena cava. Iliac veins are also noted to be aneurysmal in size (34 on left, 21 on right). I know stress could induce a rupture but could the initial dilation have been caused by stress? Male. Taking no medication.

Hi..
It is not just stress but the problem seems to be related to heart..
A proper monitoring is mandatory in your case as abdominal aortic aneurysm, dialation of inferior Vena Cava and illiac veins is not just an outcome of stress..

So you should immediately consult a Cardiologist and get evaluated..

A clinical examination, Echocardiography, cholesterol levels etc are involved in initial testing..

Do not delay to avoid medical emergency..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
