About Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a heart muscle disease in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick. The thickened heart muscle can make it harder for the heart to pump blood.
HCM may cause no symptoms, or it may cause shortness of breath, chest pain, or lightheadedness. It can also lead to heart failure and sudden cardiac death.
There is no cure for HCM, but treatments are available to help control symptoms. These treatments may include medications, lifestyle changes, and surgery.
