Cardiac tumors are cancerous tumors that develop in the heart. They can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Some are harmless or easily treated, while others can be fatal. In general, for people with heart tumors, early diagnosis can lead to earlier treatment and better outcomes.
Heart tumors vary in size and shape. Some are pedunculated, meaning they grow on a stalk. Heart tumors can range in size from 1 cm to 15 cm. Their size and location in your heart influence your symptoms and treatment need.
The majority of heart tumors can be treated using minimally invasive techniques.
