  • Bronchogenic carcinomas
  • Breast carcinomas
  • Lymphomas
  • Leukemia
  • Carcinoid
  • Melanomas
  • Cervical Carcinoma
  • Renal Cell Carcinoma
  • Renal Angiomyolipomas
  • Uterine Leiomyomas
  • Testicular Teratomas
  • Embryonal Cell Carcinomas
  • Choriocarcinomas
  • Thyroid Carcinoma
  • Hemangiopericytomas

Primary cardiac tumors include:

  • Mycomas
  • Fibromas
  • Lipomas
  • Rhabdomyoma
  • Plasma Cell Granulomas

  • Hemagiopericytoma
  • Fibroelastomas
  • Angiomas
  • Hemangiomas
  • Angiomyolipoma/Hamartoma
  • Lymphangioma
  • Myocosis Fungiodes
30% of all cardiac tumors are myxomas (90% are left sided). Myxomas account for 50% of benign cardiac tumors. 10% of all cardiac tumors are lipomas.  Angiosarcomas account for 33% of primary malignant cardiac tumors.

Primary cardiac sarcomas account for 20% of all primary cardiac tumors. 1/3 of sarcomas are undifferentiated histiocytoma/pleomorphic sarcomas.
