Heart Lesion

I recently had a nuclear stress test done and the results showed I had a Heart Lesion. Just what does this mean?

Heart lesion is heart tissue that has been traumitized causing discontinuity of tissue or loss of function of a part.  If the lesion is located with the septum (wall separating heart chambers) could cause discontinuity of electrical impulses resulting in arrhythmia.  If the lesion is on the chamber wall, it could cause a loss of the heart's pumping functionality.  Or a lesion could be vascular causing an interruption and blockage of blood flow. Worst case scenarios.

Thanks  for the information. I have an appointment scheduled with the Cardiologist next week.  Can you go out on a limb and give me some options at what I may be looking at..medications, surgery, etc...

A heart lesion is too general to provide a specific understanding to what is the condition. What are your symptoms? What is the ejection fraction (EF) of your left ventricle (calculation s/b included with stress test report)?. Any congenital heart structure anomolies?  Prior heart attack?  Any diagnosed blockage of vessels?
