Don't be nervous: soft systolic murmur is a very vague description given to you by your doctor. It could be something absolutely benign. If you're having symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath or other cardiac symptoms AND you have a murmur, then perhaps there's more reason for concern. I'm sure your cardiologist will give you a good explanation and hopefully nothing serious. Be well!
