What is "trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation" noted on an echo? Anything to worry about?

In brief: Valve regurgitation

Echocardiograms and doppler studies have become very sophisticated that they can identify the most minor abnormalities.
"trace" findings are not harmful and nothing to worry about but your tests should be repeated every so often as recommended by your cardiologist to monitor these findings. Perhaps, in due time, these findings can get worse and be treated accordingly as they are discovered.
