what is benign heart murmur?

Common, not serious

Open-uri20120915-24692-1iign1d
Heart murmur is basically an extrasound is heard/generated when the heart pumps. Benign in medicine means not serious/not concerning. Probably about 60% of young children have some murmur during the first decade of life because of the rapid changes in the heart as they grow. So, if doc said benign heart murmur, that is something NOT to worry. If u are still concerned, consult doc. Good luck

How serious is a heart murmur?

Depends

Heart_murmur
Most heart murmurs are benign. Functional murmurs are those that relate to turbulent flow through normal valves. Anyone of us can have a murmur. Some murmurs are related to mild or moderate leaking across valves and do not need any immediate attention. However, other murmurs are more serious and related to serious narorwing or leaking of valves. Some relate to holes in heart such as VSD's

how do you treat a heart murmur?

It varies

Heart_murmur
A heart murmur is simply an extra sound coming from the heart. It does not necessarily mean there is a problem to treat. In fact, most children with heart murmurs have no heart disease at all. These are known as "innocent" murmurs. When the murmur is related to heart disease, the treatment depends upon the cause of the murmur ranging from observation to medications to catheter or surgical therapy.

See a cardiologist.

Just see a cardiologist and he or she will tell you if there's anything that needs to be done. Could be fine, or could require attention. It's all in the details.

Can anxiety cause a heart murmur?

No

Heart
Heart murmurs are caused mostly by diseases of the valves of the heart, but can also be caused by congenital heart disease with septal defects, or abnormal connections between the aorta and pulmonary artery. They can also be totally benign conditions due to vigorous blood flow through the heart, usually in kids and athletes. Those murmurs are known as pulmonary flow murmurs.

Does a RBBB cause a heart murmur?

Nope

Heart_murmur
The right bundle branch block would just cause the right ventricle to contract a little later than normal. if you have a murmur, it must be unrelated. Many murmurs are completely benign -- a good cardiologist can tell you the cause of your murmur and whether or not it is of concern.
