In brief: Depends

This depends on how severe the stenosis is.
It is important to see a cardiologist and continue to watch this condition closely as it changes over time, and you may need surgery at some point in time.

In brief: It depends

Mitral stenosis is a disease of the mitral valve which doesn't let the valve open enough.
It is more common in the us to see the valve leak. The issue is how blocked is the valve. If the mv is too tight then pressure builds up in the lungs and the lungs get sick with pulmonary hypertension. The usual treatment would be a valve replacement though some can be repaired.
