Brief Answer:
Yes you should see your cardiologist or G.P.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HCM.
The causes of cardiomegaly may vary. Many times this condition results from high blood pressure (hypertension) or coronary artery disease. An enlarged heart may not pump blood effectively, resulting in congestive heart failure.A stress test should also be done to rule out coronary artery disease,Fasting lipid profile should be done.If all these tests are normal then you are clear from cardiac side.

My brother, 53 yrs old, had an artificial valve placed after his dr found that he had an enlarged heart. This was in 1998. The last few months, he has had chest pains nearly every day. This wk, the dr told him he had two black spots on his heart & would need to see a heart specialist. He s also on coumadine. The family is very worried, of course. What could this be & is it life-threatening?

My 10 year old boy was having fever 3 days back and the dr gave him a course of antibiotic. today is the 4th day and his fever was still 39 and is having a very bad cough. I took him again to the Dr. today who sent him for an X-ray to check the lungs. The Dr. then said that she found that the size of the heart is big for his age and said will send the x-ray to the cardiologist to view it. I am very worried now and would like to know what might be the resons for having enlarged heart.
