Heart Murmurs Need to Be Detected

Heart murmurs are very difficult to deal with.  They're also very tough to recognize for physicians as to whether they are serious heart murmurs, or what we call the benign ones.  I won't get into specifics here, but basically there are two types of murmurs that can be a problem.  The ones that are more serious could actually cause extra stress on the heart, extra pressure.  Down the road, that can lead to long-term damage, even enlarging of the heart and problems like that.  So, it's very important that murmurs be detected and worked up. 

We always appreciate your comments.
