My mother was diagnosed with aortic valve stenosis by echocardiogram. Will I get it?

The best answer is perhaps. Aortic stenosis is a thickening and calcification of the aortic valve. It can run in families or be due to rheumatic fever or a congenital abnormality of the valve. You should get regular checkups and if a murmur is heard then you should get an echocardiogram or an ultra sound of the heart.
