Question Do you know if this is really serious?

Hi everyone,
I am new posting. I am really worried about my friend. She thought she had athsma (was told by another docter) and wanted to join a sport this year so she had to go to a docter. This docter told her that he disagreed and looked at her heart. I guess she has some kind of extra "click" in her heart. Which is suppose to be a leaky valve. He said that not many women have this problem. Is this someting really serious? Please tell me what you know about this. Thank you for all your time.

Sometimes they will not do anything about a leaky valve. Sometimes it will require surgical intervention. Look at it this way. So many of these procedures are done these days that the doctors get lots and lots of practice at them. Yes there can be problems but they are good at this stuff.
