I am 27 and have just been diagnosed with trivial mitral regurgitation but no mention of mvp on my echocardiogram results. Is this likely progress?

In brief: Don't worry

Trivial mitral regurgitation is just that - trivial.
Do not worry too much about this very common finding. Just file the knowledge away, and if you ever have another echo (which you just might never need) you and your doctor can see if there has been any change. In all likelihood there won't be.

In brief: No. Unlikely

Trivial mr is of no concern and is extremely common.
Mr is only an issue when the regurgitant volume affects cardiac performance and physiology such that the heart enlarges or weakens under the strain of an inefficient pump, wherein blood regurgitates back into the left atrium. Over time that can enlarge and weaken the muscle. That is extremely unlikely to occur w trivial mr w/o mvp/abnl valve.
