    The answer is yes, it would most likely be HCM. Given your family history, though, I would lean toward HCM anyway. I'm sorry that you're going through this, but you can live a full life with HCM. You asked in another thread about life expectancies, dying from HCM, etc. Most with HCM live long full lives. The key is to find a doctor who understands the disease and find a treatment regimen that works for you.

    If the LVH is simply LVH secondary to hypertension and it is NOT HCM there is a world of difference.

    LVH from hypertension can be controlled and in some cases corrected with meds. HCM is a genetic condition that can be controlled to a large degree but not corrected.
