My daughter is suffering heart murmur. Should I be worried ?

My four year old daughter just had her yearly check up and the doctor said she is growing great and is where she needs to be. But when she checked her heart she said she heard a murmur. She just told us what a murmur is but did not make a big deal about it. She has refferred us to a pediatric cardiologist . I am really worried and don't really know what to expect. Should I be worried ?

Take th epediatric cardiologist opinion on it. Sometimes murmurs are heard in malnourished children also..wait til she is investigated for th ehreat murmer then it wil be clear whether you should be worried or  not and what line of treatment should be followed to treat your daughter.
