In brief: Yes
I see folks all the time of all ages who have an ASD discovered.
Small ones are subtle, may not have a murmur, may not cause any abnormality on ekg, may be hard to pick up on a routine echo, may not cause any abnormality on a chest x-ray, may not cause any symptoms, and may not require any treatment.
