If a valve leaked under a sink and got onto a ceramic tile floor that was on concrete could that cause problems later on?

It really depends on how well your tile floor was grouted and sealed. But especially with it being on concrete, I wouldn't worry too much. If it was on wood subflooor on the other hand, I would be very concerned. My only concern at this point is whether or not you have a heat grid installed under the tile. As long as you don't have any heat grid under the tile, I would recommend putting down a layer of oil-dry (available at automotive stores) to absorb any residual moisture. Keep an eye on it for any mold development, but I really think you should be fine.

The only potential damage would be the growth of mold. If the tile was set and grouted properly then there is very little chance of that since bathrooms are cleaned more often than other rooms.
