In brief: Muscle Cancer

There are rare muscle-cancers that can occur in the heart muscle.
Because heart muscle does not replicate much. Cancer is very rare in these tissues. Occasionally a sarcoma (cancer of soft tissues) can form in the heart, but more often it is the result of cancer spreading from other sources - another sarcoma or even melanoma.

In brief: Cancer of heart

Actually there are primary tots of the heart.
Some cancers can spread to the heart or lining of the heart, too.
