Known as cardiac tumor, this disease is an abnormal tissue growth on the heart or cardiac valves.
Cardiac tumors cab me malign or benign. The tumors that grow inside the heart and contained within are called primary tumors. The tumors that have started to grow in another organ and then spread to the heart are called secondary tumors. The most common type of primary cardiac tumor is myxoma, which is benign. However, depending on their location and size, benign cardiac tumors may also lead to serious results.
