Depends. : A murmur is caused by turbulent blood flow in the heart. Many murmurs are benign. Some are caused by valve disease. Ultimately, the consequences are from what caused the murmur. Valve disease can progress, but sometimes stabilizes for a long time. You should talk to a doctor to get a good history and physical.
