This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
3.8 cm dilatation is considered a very mild dilatation of the aorta.
However this needs to be monitored with echocardiogram every year.
Most importantly your blood pressure should be controlled well to prevent any further dilatation.
Blood pressure should be around 120/80.
Cholesterol also should be lowered with statins.
LDL level should be below 100 mg/dl.
In case of chest pains, vasodilators like nitrate may be used as well.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
