Metastatic cardiac tumors are more common than the primary ones and they most commonly involve the pericardium or myocardium. Very rarely they may show partial or total intracavitory growth. Ours is one such case of solitary intracavitory cardiac metastasis in a patient with adenocarcinoma of the right lung who presented with hemoptysis and palpitation. Echocardiography and histopathological study clinched the diagnosis.
