Hi there,
This is Dr Diego from Boston, experienced Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I understand your concerns.
The differentia diagnosis of amass near the heart includes benign and malignant possibilities. Depends on your age, risk factors and previous history. A mass could be secondary to lung masses, vascular problems, thymomas. A MRI is not the best study to look at this problem. Talk to your doctor and find if he has a final report and the possibility of further testing like a CT scan of the chest.
