-Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your querry.
It is hard to say,but heart tumors are very rare and this is probably lung or mediastinal tumor which infiltrate heart ventricle. This is not good sign and further tests and agressive treatment is necessary as soon as possible.
Hope I have answered your query. Regards
