Congenital heart disease is a defect that exists in the structure of your heart since birth. It can change how blood flows through it and has been known to cause life-threatening complications for some people, but advances in diagnosis and treatment have allowed babies with congenital defects to survive into adulthood. Sometimes signs are not seen until you're an adult which means they might be missed by doctors when still being diagnosed as infants or young children.
