Tumors Between The Heart And Lungs?
I was diagnosed with a tumor between the heart and lungs. For about 5 months I have often had pain in my left chest and irregular beatings. That’s how it is, is there a connection between the two?
Thank you for the question.
The tumor between the heart and the lung in question may be a mediastinal tumor. Mediastinum itself culminates in an area in the middle of the thoracic cavity that is between the sternum (middle sternum) and spine. In this area, there are a variety of vital organs, including the heart, esophagus, and trachea.
There are many types of mediastinal tumors, often classified according to their location, such as:
Tumors on the front of the mediastinum: lymphomas, thymic tumors
Middle-mediastinal tumors: bronchogenic cysts, mediastinal lymphadenopathy, pericardial cysts, tracheal tumors, aortic swelling
Tumors on the back of the mediastinum L extramedular hematopoiesis, mediastinal lymphadenopathy, mediastinal neuroenteric cysts, mediastinal neurogenic neoplasms, etc.
In adults, mediastinal tumors most often appear on the front, and are usually malignant. Depending on the type, location, and severity of the tumor that you are experiencing, this tumor may indeed be causing you to experience left chest pain and irregular heart palpitations, maybe not. Left chest pain and heart palpitations are irregular, in addition due to mediastinal tumors, can also indicate rhythm disorders or heart valves, disorders of electrolyte balance, heart attacks, weak heart, swollen heart, bronchitis, pleurisy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, muscle pain, nerve pain , fibromyalgia, panic attacks, and many other possibilities.
Your condition should be examined directly by a doctor or internist in order to be further evaluated, such as by x-rays, heart records, ultrasound, endoscopy, CT scan, MRI, or other supporting tests. Depending on the cause, your condition can later be handled differently. If your condition is purely related to a mediastinal tumor, the doctor can refer you to an oncology surgeon to have surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or other therapeutic modalities.
At this time, what needs to be done:
Compress warm chest area that is uncomfortable
Don't worry too much, afraid, or panic too much
Regularly exercise, at least 30 minutes a day
Sleep early and more regularly
Do not drink caffeinated or excessive carbonated drinks
Do not consume alcohol, stay away from cigarettes and drugs
Eat regularly, little but often
Hope this helps ...
