Cardiac Sarcoma

Cardiac sarcoma is a type of tumor that occurs in the heart. Cardiac sarcoma is a primary malignant (cancerous) tumor. Tumors are considered to be either primary tumors or secondary tumors. A primary tumor is the original site of tumor growth. A secondary tumor originates from another tumor elsewhere in the body. Primary tumors of the heart are rare, and over 75 percent of primary cardiac tumors are benign (non-cancerous).

Beaumont Hospital -Royal Oak has been named a Blue Distinction CenterSM for this condition as part of a national program sponsored by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. Blue Distinction Centers provide comprehensive cancer care, delivered by multidisciplinary teams with special training and clinical expertise in treating certain types of cancer.
