Consult a cardiologist for evaluation, appropriate testing ( such as an echocardiogram) & advice. Right atrial enlargement by EKG isn't always accurate. History of heart murmurs? Right atrial enlargement and right axis deviation are common in chronic pulmonary disease. ST-T abnormalities & rightward QRS axis can be seen in youths. Carcinoid is a rare disease. Do you have characteristic symptoms?
