Black spot on heart detected in chemical stress test, Myocardial infarction or Cancer?

Last November 2011, I had a chemical stress test on my heart that found a black spot on my heart. Usually, it means Myocardial Infarction ie heart attack . I also know that a black spot can mean cancer if found on a body organ . I am notw, I am beginning to think that since the dummies here think I didn t have a heart attack .......could the black spot mean cancer.

A black spot in the heart on a chemical stress test does not mean you have cancer. A chemical stress test is done to know the blood flow through the heart vessels and to know the size of the vessels. A dark spot during the test suggests a normal heart, whereas a white spot means the blood flow is low and impeded. So you don't have to worry about a black spot. Your heart is normal.
Take care
