Description: Anatomy of the heart; a pullout shows the aorta, superior vena cava, pericardium, coronary artery, and inferior vena cava.

Heart tumors are rare tumors that form in the tissues of the heart, including muscle tissue, connective tissue, and tissues that line the blood vessels, control heart rhythm, and cover the nerves of the heart. They may also form in the pericardium (the sac around the heart). Most heart tumors are benign (not cancer), but some may be malignant (cancer).
