What causes black spots on heart?

Hi this past 2 months my friend saw that he had black spots on his heart. Since then I ve worried about if he would have a sudden heart attack in a year or so because of this. He also has had a Heart murmur since he was a newborn child so is there a bad risk of his heart to die? Plus can heart surgery or replacement fix the problem?

I have gone through your query.Thanks for using HCM.i would need exact reports of Echo and ECG to guide you properly.Black spot on heart is very unusal term .please give exact details.If murmur is due to valvular heart disease and if it is severe he may need replacement,but I need exact information to give you right guidance
My best wishes
