1 doctor agrees

In brief: Skin / muscle / bone

Cardiac disease does not present with "swelling on the chest.
" I am not sure what the swelling represents, but I am most sure that it is outside his chest cavity and related to skin, muscle or bone. Your husband is unfortunate to have had heart disease while you are still at such a young age.
