This question was not answered by a nutritionist, however another user commented.
Yes, very uncommon, unknown cause, and bad prognosis. Most are sarcomas (cancers arising from muscle, fat, bone and other connective tissue). Maignant primary tumors include sarcomas, pericardial mesothelioma, and primary lymphomas. Of the sarcomas, almost 40% are angiosarcomas, most of which originate in the right atrium and involve the pericardium. Treated with radiotherapy, chemotherapy, sometimes surgery. Just to get an idea how uncommon this is: In my job, I hear about 40+ patients a day with cancer. Multiple times a day I hear about common cancers like lung and colon. Tumors of the heart – about 2-3 times a year.
