Is it safe to take a wait and see approach if I had a mitral valve cyst that was found by echo in september that measured 11mm and was measured in November by MRI at 17mm?

Hi, @momoffive. Here is a response from our experts: I would ask your doctor for advice on this topic. If the cyst is growing, it may be advisable to remove. But again, we cannot give individual patient advise without having seen the patient or his/her studies.
