Welcome to North Suburban Cardiology Associates

Pericardial cysts are benign, or noncancerous, tumors in the heart. They are not common, have few symptoms and typically are diagnosed by chance.

Symptoms

Symptoms associated with pericardial cysts include:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty swallowing

In rare cases, pericardial cysts can become infected or cause pneumothorax or atrial fibrillation.
