My mother is extremely obeese on top of having ceasurs and she has water around her heart and an extremely big water tumor on her side of her hip.What is a water tumor and how can she get rid of it without surgery?
The fluid around the heart is probably due to pericardial effusion. The treatment will depend on the cause. If it is due to a viral infection it will clear on its own. If it is due to a condition like lupus it will require anti-inflammatory drugs. If the effusion is putting pressure on the heart and compromising its function it needs to be drained.
Please schedule an appointment with a cardiologist and seek his opinion.
Regarding the water tumor, could you please describe it in greater detail as to where exactly it is and what symptoms it is causing?
