Thymoma / Tymic Carcinoma
“The thymus is a small organ that sits on the upper chest area, under the breastbone. It’s part of the lymph system and aids in creating specific white blood cells that help combat infection in the body.
Thymoma tumor cells look similar to normal cells that are present in the thymus and they will grow slowly, not usually spreading to areas outside of the thymus. Thymic carcinoma cells will look different than normal thymus cells and will grow faster and spread more quickly to other areas. It’s more common to see this type of cancer in patients with autoimmune disorders.”
