Leaky mitral valve and tricuspid valve

My 20 year old son found out that he has two leaky valves. He hasn't gotten the result of the holter monitor yet. He has been feeling "skips". He is so young, should I be worried about these leaky valves? Also we were planning to take a trip to the mountains. Does anyone know if it is safe to go in higher altitudes with leaky valves?

Re: Leaky mitral valve and tricuspid valve
