Lipoma near heart, had cervical cancer. Weakness, dyspnea, aneurysm. Family history of aneurysm. Shall I do something?
Thank you for posting the query.
Your reports are not clear. It looks like lipoma should be outside heart and in mediastinum and in that case it may need treatment and may not be cause for your symptoms.
Secondly aneurysm size of 3cm? We usually call aorta as aneurysmal only after 5-5.5cm depending on the location.
Please recheck that report also and get back to me with detailed reports and images.
You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.
Awaiting your response.
Thanks for providing me the details of the MRI.
After having reviewed your history and the MRI reports, my opinion is as follows:
The lipoma specified in the report is located critically and surgical removal may cause more harm. Further the symptoms of dysnea and chest pain that you have are unlikely to be caused by these lipoma.
Hence I agree with your cardiologist that there is no real indication to surgically remove the lipoma.
The symptoms that you describe are not be related to a cardiac condition. Perhaps a detailed evaluation of other pulmonary and systemic causes by your physician can be able to identify the real cause.
The bottom line is "Cardiac lipoma such as yours is a harmless condition. As they are located critically one should not attempt to remove it surgically".
Hope I have provided you with useful information. Please do accept the answer if you do not have any further queries.
Thanks for writing back.
If it grows marginally nothing would happen. If it grows significantly it can cause pressure on many of surrounding structures such as heart, food pipe or tarchea. In which case it need to be operated.
Hope I answered your query completely.
