Diagnosed lymphoma, mass on heart, flu, vision problems. Had lymphnode biopsy done. How long does it take for mass to grow on heart?

YYYY@YYYY have a friend who may be soon diagnosed with lymphoma , she also has a mass on her heart. That is all I know now. I will know more later today. I m wondering how long it takes for a mass to grow on her heart. She has a series of problems inclucing flu like symptoms and vision problems over the past 4 months. It s taken that long for a large series of tests to be ordered. Last week she had a lymph node biopsy which she will have results from today.

Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
It depends what kind of mass it is.if this is lymphoma than growing dynamic is unpredictable and it can take from few months to few years. More important thing is to evaluate is there any danger for his heart function. It may also be mixoma which is rare heart tumor but should always be considered. In every case,the right diagnosis should be established before treatment can begin.
Wish you good health. Regards
