- Cardiac tumors are classified as either primary or secondary based on their origin.
- Primary tumors can be categorized as benign, malignant, or intermediate.
In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) changed the classification of cardiac neoplasms, including benign tumors, tumor-like lesions, malignant tumors, and pericardial tumors. 
- Now, cardiac tumors are categorized into primary and secondary.
