Trace and mild regurgitation is considered medically insignificant...not uncommon and almost always no progression.

The aorta valve leaflets have 3 cusps normally, and some times the leaflets are fused together resulting in a deformed 2 cuspid configuration. If the doctor is unconcerned, then it can be assumed there is current issue.
