We have family history of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). I’m 19 years old boy and I started to worry about that. I’m very active, I play basketball every day for few hours. I’m really afraid that my heart can suddenly stop. I’m planning to go to doctor because of that. How is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy diagnosed?

First to will do blood test to check for specific gene mutations. Then chest X-rays that allow the heart size and position to be viewed. After that you should do echocardiograms (ECHO), electrocardiograms (ECG) and heart catheterization.
