Most heart tumors are benign myxomas, fibromas, rhabdomyomas, and
hamartomas, although malignant sarcomas (such as angiosarcoma or cardiac
sarcoma) have been known to occur. In a study of 12,487 autopsies performed
in Hong Kong seven cardiac tumors were found, most of which were
benign.^[1] According to Mayo Clinic: "At Mayo Clinic, on average only one
case of heart cancer is seen each year."^[1]

*Notable cases[edit]*
