    Has the graft point changed noticeably recently?  I'm struggling to see any other issue.  Other than that (and grafts often look like yours) your weeping cherry tree look healthy.  If the graft has rapidly changed in appearance, then a disease such as canker could have entered in which case there is nothing you can do, but the tree could easily go on growing for many years before you start seeing dieback in the branches, at which point you would remove and replace.  Some decorative cherry trees only live for about 15 years anyway.

    The top of a graft growing wider than the bottom isn’t unusual and is nothing to worry about. 

    This is the graft point of my very healthy and productive  espaliered pear tree.

    It is perfectly normal for the trunk above the graft to be wider than the trunk of the rootstock below, so I think you have absolutely nothing to worry about.  I can't remember the thread, but I think @Dovefromabove posted a photo of a similar graft where the difference was much more noticable, but still perfectly normal. :)

    Edit,you snuck in there while I was typing, Dove! :D
