Hi,
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?
