In brief: Heart cancer

Heart cancer is extremely rare and carries a significant mortality.
It is usually treated with chemotherapy, or supportive care depending on the stage of cancer. I would speak with your cancer doctor.

In brief: No

Cancer of the heart is rare and there is no treatment.
Secondary cancer, that is as a result of spread of cancer arising from another organ such as the lung and breast is not uncommon and denotes poor outcome.Treatment is directed towards the primary cancer.
