I was told by a echo ultrasound of my baby that she has a hole in her heart and it will disappear afterwards should I be worry?
Trust provider: Fetal blood circulation requires a connection between the two sides of the heart. Normally, this closes during birth, but it's common to remain connected infancy, then close themselves during early childhood posing no threat. If your provider suggested it would close itself, then it's likely common & not dangerous. Keep follow up appointments & recommendations. You shouldn't worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A year a go I had an echo ultrasound n a 24 holter monitor everything was fine I still have palpitations n missed heart beats specially when stresses. No other simptoms. Should I worry?

The holter is fine but unless you have any symptoms during the 24 hrs it may miss things. I suggest a 30 day event recorder to cast a wider net, and do a stress echo to see if exercise shows the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why would a 6.6cm cyst with echoes on ultrasound be visible after 6 weeks, however not visible on the scan another 4 weeks later and symptoms remain?
Sounds like: If it was an "echogenic intracardiac focus", this is a "soft" or 'minor' marker for down's syndrome, and in patients who are otherwise "low risk" for genetic defects, it is not felt to indicate an increased risk for ds.

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs.
