Should I get my ASD repaired?
I am a 21 year old female and I recently found out that I have a 1 cm hole in the heart between the right and left atrium. Little bit of shunting.  Right atrium, RV are midly dilated.  The only reason I went to get an echo cardiogram was because I have been feeling like I can't breathe randomly and have major anxiety since January.  Before my anxiety started I never had any of these symptoms. I'm really scared now because I don't know if this is a huge problem.  I can exercise fine without being out of breath but I'm scared if my hole will get bigger. I heard about repairing the hole with an umbrella like device thru a vein in the leg, but all surgeries have their risks.. such as rejection and infection and stroke, etc.
1. will the hole get bigger if I don't do anything about it?
2. will I get problems with my lungs and heart in the future?
3. are amplatzer occluders safe..
4. can I keep exercising like I do?
