My 58 year old father has had heart problems for over 20 years, but he finally got a diagnosis of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy of the right valve. My dad and I aren't close, so I don't know what this means. He called to tell me it is genetic. Should I get tested or is it okay to just 'not worry about it' b/c I am only 29 years old. Any info. would help. Thanks!!!!!!
