Nodules on the heart can be due to Sarcoidosis (a condition in which there is formation of tiny nodules of inflammatory tissue in various organs of body like lungs, eyes, liver, spleen or heart).

Nodules can also be due to other conditions like Tuberculosis; or a cancer.

these nudules are on his heart and fluid around the heart
Doctor: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Now given the history that he has nodules on the heart, the resultant formation or accumulation of fluid around the heart is called Pericardial Effusion; and this can happen with the conditions causing nodules as I described above.

The treatment depends upon the underlying cause, for example if this is from tuberculosis then anti-tuberculosis drugs will help.

For sarcoidosis steroids may be given.

At the same time if the fluid around heart is causing significant symptoms like heart failure, chest pain or shortness of breath, then the doctors may also elect to remove the fluid therapeutically

For you to know this further, better get hold of his medical evaluation from the hospital so that you know the exact diagnosis, which will clarify the queries you have regarding further and long term management plan.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
