Heart Tumor Market Scenario
According to the surgery and autopsy reports, primary cardiac tumors are rare with an incidence rate of about 0.3%-0.7%. Malignant primary cardiac sarcomas are usually located in the right atrium of the heart and are most commonly angiosarcomas. The malignant primary cardiac tumors are often diagnosed in young patientswho have a poor prognosis and survival rate of only 10% According to the WHO, the prevalence of melanoma skin cancers has been increasing from the past few decades. Furthermore, 132,000 melanoma skin cancers cases are reported each year across the globe.
The Global Heart Tumor Market Size is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 7.1% during the forecast period.
Cardiac tumors is a rare disease that are difficult to diagnose. They are divided on the basis of type into primary and secondary tumors. The prevalance of the secondary tumors is higher than the primary tumors. Majority of the primary cardiac tumors are benign in origin. The high incidences of metastatic tumors is attributed to various types of cancers such as lung, breast, renal cancer, lymphomas and melanomas. Clinical manifestations of these tumors generally based on the size and location of the tumors and spread to the adjacent tissues rather than the type of the tumor itself. Echocardiography is the major tool used for diagnosis of the tumors. Other imaging modalities include cardiac MRI, cardiac CT, and 3D echocardiography, which may offer some additional information with histological examination.
A small percentage of cardiac tumor cases are hereditary, the tumors can also be associated with another health condition, such as LAMB Syndrome, Carney Syndrome or NAME Syndrome. However, most often, the tumor develops without being associated with any health condition or presence of a family history. They result from cell overgrowth but mostly cardiac tumors results from metastatic condition, where cells from other cancerous organ such as lung and breast, soft-tissues and metastasizes to the heart.

Heart Tumor Market Segmentation
The heart tumor is segmented on the basis of type, diagnosis, treatment.
On the basis of the type, the market is segmented into primary tumors and secondary tumors. The primary tumors are divided into benign and malignant. The benign tumors is further categorized into myxoma, papillary heart tumors, fibromas, rhabdomyomas, angioma, and lipomas. The malignant tumors are divided into rhabdomyosarcoma, mesenchymomas, neurosarcoma, fusiform cell tumors, malignant heart hemangioma, and lymphosarcoma. The secondary tumor is categorized into metastatic and contiguity. The metastatic secondary tumors are divided into hematogenic and lymphatic and the contiguity is sub categorized into mediastinal tumors, lung tumors and oesophageal, or cardia tumor.
On the basis of the diagnosis, the market is classified into echocardiogram, Computed Tomography (CT) scan, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), radionuclide imaging, Position Emission Tomography (PET) Scan, myocardial biopsy, cardiac catherization, and electrophysiology test.
On the basis of the treatment, the market is classified into surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy. Furthermore, the surgery is further categorized into open heart surgery, minimal invasive surgery, and heart transplant surgery
International Heart Tumor Market Regional Analysis
The global heart tumor market consists of four major regions: the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa. The Americas dominate the market owing to the rising awareness among people and increasing healthcare expenditure. The type of tumors also aids in selection of treatment procedure. For instance, in patient with heart cancers, the results of cardiac imaging could be used to see if the the tumor is spread to the adjacent tissues, which can be further used to remove the portion by performing excision surgery or pursuing treatment with medications.
